Needing to focus on positives
Quotes and sayings were an important part of my remaining positive
Forget - me - not Author unknown was one that remained a special reminder for me
Our problems are many and varied
Our struggles are always uphill
I'm speaking for hundreds of children
So listen a while if you will.
I want understanding - not pity
I wish you would treat me the same
You wouldn't ignore other children
At least you would ask them their name.
I know I can't answer to tell you
My face may seem empty and dead
My body is twisted - but I am alive
and there are thoughts in my head.
I will not be shut out from the world
I'm a child and it is my right
My parents see me through eyes of love
and not as others do.
As I ask you to forget - me - not
I beg you to hear my plea
If I could speak - I would ask you
To please look closer - and see me.....
