The Sun (April 2011)

I like it when the sun shines,
When it's warm and hot and bright,
To feel the sun's rays on my face,
From early morn till night.

I like to lie in the park,
When the sun is high,
To listen to the birdsong
And watch the world go by.

I like to play on the beach
And smell the rolling sea,
To watch my dad fly a kite
And hope it won't hit me!

Coming Out of the Ghetto

I thought you might like to read this poem. I wrote it in May 2010 after I went to an event about disabled children's rights. Lots of people were talking about disabled children being in a ghetto and it got me thinking about it and then I wrote this poem.

Coming Out Of The Ghetto

We are coming out of the ghetto,
We are shouting loud and clear,
About the rights that we have,
This is going to be our year.

We are coming out of ghetto,
We are going to join you all,
Full participation,
Is our clarion call.

Don't dare to underestimate
All that we can do,
We have our thoughts and with help
We are able too.

We may be small, may not walk,
May talk in different ways,
But with our determination
We'll set the world ablaze.

Give us disabled children
The voice we should have,
Stop deciding what is best for us,
We've really had enough.

We know our minds, if you just ask,
We'll tell you what we need,
Don't think you always know what's best,
Let us take the lead.

We are coming out of the ghetto,
We are shouting loud and clear,
About the rights that we have,
This is going to be our year.

We are coming out of the ghetto,
We are going to join you all,
Full participation,
Is our clarion call.
