Children Of A Lesser God

Oh, children of a lesser god- defects can steal your life away, as you are judged by how you look, or if you hear or speak, or see; if arms and legs fail miserably- or minds perform imperfectly. We fail to see the worth inside which often cannot let us know that sometimes- there a talent lies- above, beyond, what we believe you are so given to conceive- then, awed by what you do achieve. Your real self may be entrapped- so yearning to express those things you can't define, yet live within. And, if that spark is reared in stride, savant, you will be classified- child of a greater God espied. Oh, children of a lesser god- we must help hone your paths untrod. April 5, 2020 ~8th Place~ Contest: Children Of A Lesser God Sponsor: Craig Cornish Judged: 04/18/2020 Inspired by the story of Kodi Lee, an autistic, blind young man who is now a famous pianist and singer, after his mother saw and supported well his inborn musical talents.
