Hello, I’m A Wheelchair

May 1, 2011

Dear Readers,

This original poem is my contribution to this year’s Blogging Against Disablism Day. I hope you enjoy it!

Hello, I’m A Wheelchair

Hello, I’m a wheelchair
And my name is Becky
At least, that’s the name of
The girl who steers me.

As she wheels me down the street,
She dreams of standing on her feet.
The look on her face you don’t see.
You’re too busy looking at me.

She gives you a smile so true
But you don’t see that, do you?
The smile on her face you don’t see.
You’re too busy looking at me.

Hello, I’m a wheelchair
And I’m steered by Becky
A girl who’d so much rather
Be climbing a tall tree.

So when you meet my best friend,
Look closer, and you’ll see
Without her, where would I be?
Parked in a garage, that’s where, watching you climb a tree.

When you see me and Becky,
There’s one thing you don’t see
I couldn’t move without her,
Any more than she could move without me!

    Great ending! I love this line: “I couldn’t move without her,
    Any more than she could move without me!”
