It 's hard to be compassionate and be kind.
You see a healthy well abled person that's fine.

But they tell everyone they can't stand it .
They talk about ending their life and just complain.

You are lucky you get help a homemaker that comes in 5 days a week

You live in housing so you get cheaper rent.
Some think being disabled is a easy life.

It's not easy we just don't COMPLAIN.
