Just Like You Or Me
Author: Capricorn


Some people just see a person as they are
But perhaps they're not looking very far

For some people have problems, you know
Finding it difficult their real selves to show

They're covered up with layers of abnormality
But these layers are just their disability

All you need to do is peel those layers away
And you will see the real person today

For there's a person behind that disability
Just like you or me
It just needs you to look and see!

i feel the same

i work with a blind boy at school and people use to be really mean to him. I finally let people know that he had feelings to and they understand now!

your writing says everything I feel Just because we are disabled doesn;t mean we don't feel the same as others , pain happiness, sadness. Another one with good insight.

Thanks Becky and Barb

Becky- So glad you told people about that boy. He's lucky you are working with him, someone who cares! My son is autistic and some people have been very caring, others are really rude..but they're not worth bothering about!

Barb- wrote this one for my son and also for you!!
