Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
More than capable
"I Am Me" by Wils
When you look at me
what do you see?
A person?
Or a disability?

Sometimes I need you to assist
just so I can coexist.
But there are things that I can do.
Let me try please, I insist

I have some trouble with my speech.
Longer words are out of reach
With my fancy talk device
I can repeat the ones they teach.

I have received some education
I can spell small words, do multiplication
When I get things right in class
My face shows nothing but pure elation

Please don't look at what they see
Look beyond that, look at me
I am a person, just like you
A valued member of society


Author Notes
I have worked in the disability industry for over twenty years and am surprised every day just how much they are capable of.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
