In celebration of the bright gems who live among us.
~ International Week of the Deaf, 2019 ~
Sitting on a bench,
watching as the world goes past.
Sadness, anger, and all emotions around me.
I am protected in my peace.
They can never touch me.
Unless I raise my hands to communicate.
A wonderful life,
blessed with a world of my own.
I can choose to be who I want to be,
Go where I want to go.
Colour and touch my pieces in the grand puzzle.
Exotic and wondrous tastes,
my everyday adventures.
A beautiful life.
Eyes wide open.
