Needing to focus on positives

CoolQuotes 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.....
