I may have a body with parts that don't work.
A voice that sounds like a I'm a jerk.
Some things are different,
but my mind and my heart are the same,
so I am...

I agree with everything that Terrie says. I am remembering a poem I wrote about disability .... " Peel back the layers of disability and we will see a person like everyone else." Great poem barb -- great inspiration!

I'm along the line with Lady T and Cap too! You're special in every way, despite your disability! I'm happy to know that you're satisfied with the way you are, that's also a boost in self-esteem! We love you for who you are, not for what you are.... Because your poems are very comforting for young people like, myself...

Take care Barb!
