What Do You See?

What Do You See?
What do you see when you look at me?
My disability?
Don’t you see just how much more there is to me?

I am more than just the specialized equipment I use or the way I walk or talk.
I am a person with thoughts, feelings, dreams and aspirations.
I am an individual with plans and dreams for my own life.

I am well aware of what I can and cannot do.
I refuse to be categorized or stifled by what others think of me.
I will not be shoved into a box that others constantly try to put me in because they think it’s where fit.
I will not be told to sit in a corner and quietly wait.

I know my strengths and my weaknesses, my dreams and sorrows.
I know what I am capable of and what I am not.
I will not sit idly by and watch life pass me by, watch all I want slip through my fingers.
I will not sit quietly and politely listen to others who put me down.
I will decide my own future.
