ODE TO THE HANDICAPPED
(c) 2018 Edward York

I know you often see me,
When shopping in the store.
You were right behind me,
When I rolled through the door.

I could see you change direction,
As I rolled down the aisle.
I saw it written on the faces,
That never showed a smile.

I can do my shopping,
And most things by myself.
I sometimes need assistance,
For things on an upper shelf.

I wasn't always like this,
I once stood strong and tall.
I could run and climb mountains,
I could do it all.

Things can happen quickly,
And that's what you should see.
With just a simple twist of fate,
It could be you instead of me.

I'll never understand why some would rather turn their backs on the disabled, or anyone that doesn't look like "them?!" 😔🥀
