We are…

We are capable of success
Just give us a little support
We are able do things that seems impossible
Just share some of your ideas with us
We are passionate and have strength despite all odds
Just hold some positive space for us
We are hard workers and contribute to society
Just allow us the opportunity
We are determined independent people
Just give us a chance
We are loving and capable parents
Just offer us tools to improve
We are intelligent and healthy individuals
Just spent time with us you will see

Inspiration

I am an inspiration

Well that is what I have been told

 

Right from the start I defied the world

Why do you ask because I wanted to survive

And not just survive but truly live

 

I am an inspiration

I took the world on and I did it with love, smiles and giggles

I took on every challenge like it was puzzle and I wanted to see the final picture

 

You are an inspiration

You took on the world with your words and actions as I watched

 

You were there at the start of everything

Cheering me on and providing strength, confidence and love

 

You are an inspiration

You gave me everything unconditionally and never looked back

 

You are the inspirational ones

I am merely living by your example

 

 

 

I AM NOT

Mangled, frail, delicate infant
Weak, poor, ignorant infant, I was NOT!

You did not have the power
to define my fate with Death

Cripple, feeble-minded, pitiful child
Unable, immobile, lame child, I was NOT!

I defied your prediction, then
I deny your position, now

Undetermined, incapable, paralyzed woman
Lessen, negative, powerless woman, I am NOT!

Fear forced your prediction of my Death
Fear created your insecurity
Fear does NOT rule me

Complete, strong, unbreakable infant
Bold, healthy, aware infant, I WAS!

I chose to prove you wrong
The power to live was mine

Whole, intelligent, witty, child
Able, mobile, bright child, I WAS!

I believed in myself
I knew success was coming

Determined, capable, secure woman
Brave, confident, powerful woman, I AM!

I fought against your fear
I fought against your insecurity
I chose LIFE when you would Not!
