I Am Whole

I Am Whole My limbs may be mangled and tore from its base but my heart reflects pure pride, you can see it in my face, there is no disgrace. Though my body has been through the ringer of life, my heart will not contain the poison of strife. I am whole. A limb is a limb, it’s only the physical me, but it can’t touch my spirituality. That’s what makes the man or the woman, not just the shell, when it’s gone there’s the other. Otherwise how shallow are we? I am whole. My eyes can’t see the hues of the light, every time of day it looks just like night. But that does not stop me from being intelligent, that’s not all in the eyes, it just isn’t, it’s in the cement of the brain, I still have good sense. I am whole. My ears just can’t hear what you’re saying to me. I see your lips moving but I can’t hear a thing. My eyes draw a picture of what I think you’re trying to say, I’ll learn to move my fingers, that’s the sign language way to convey what my mind wants to say. I am whole My body may be mangled in one way or another, but still I can soar and show off my dynamic colors. My body may be missing the benefit of legerity, but my personality is unstoppable which leads to sure prosperity because, I am whole.
