This is for the Special Education Children I work with at school.
I'm not sure if it's done yet....

Their innocence is heartbreaking

I don’t understand it

It’s too bad they’re not just faking….

It’s so hard comprehend


What’d they do to deserve,

Deserve a helpless life,

Life without control

Living through another


Can’t help but want to be with them

Share in their heartfelt laughter

See the gratitude in their smiles

Feel the hope in their hugs


These are my children

There are no exceptions

I love each of them

We all share a connection.

Your heart shines bright like the sun because it sets inside each and every one of those kids' hearts and rises above in front of their faces.I like the last stanza in your poem in terms of you saying to the world that these are your kids and you will love them unconditional as if they are your own.Children have indeed different learning disabilities and they should all be treated with love and respect and not have to experience anyone belittling them.If you ever have kids of your own,they will be lucky and truly bless to have a wonderful mother in their lives like you have been to these children,take care

You are so compassionate, loving a person. You can be a great help to all and will be rewarded for your kind help to anyone you do help. Keep up the good work, it shows in your smile too. Be happy and loving always.

Dear Emily, by chance I came across your Den. I read a few poems, one of them "Born Free" and this one “My Children”. Both poems are great and nicely written. The latter is especially touching for me as through my work I was exposed to the young handicapped, it breaks my heart. You are right, we feel helpless when we see their silent suffering.
Thank you for sharing and exposing this subject. Emile

You may not be sure, Emile, but I am of one thing: this was written from a compassionate, loving heart. Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.
