My disability is not my weakness
My mind tells me that I am capable
My heart agrees to the sayings of my mind
Yes I am able despite my limitations

Hear me out you people with limited understanding
Hear me out you people who seek better understanding
I’m calling you so that I can add a little bit to your understanding
Disabled, what an inspiration contained by disabled 

D o it myself, yes I can
I nverting peoples mind to accept me for who I am
S wiftly move them from prejudice
A dvertise the possibilities of leaving with my disability
B uild those who suffer from low self-esteem
L ead them to joy brought by self acceptance
E nable others to see the bright side of their conditions
D espise none existing shame of being disable thrown
