The fallacies in the lives of disableds
The fallacies in the lives of disabled’s
A torrential downpour of tears, profusely flowed
upon seeing / hearing what a blind, autistic boy showed
of a world, we know not, beneath the surface lies,
behind the sightlessness of these worldly eyes
A world beyond any possible comprehension.
A world to which we offer our compassion.
What a universe, within, for us to see
as they put themselves on display, set free
all that lies within their physical disability,
to give us glimpses of their hidden ability.
Every so often, one excels, shows what is inside,
where so many others live, and from us hide.
