By K W Warburton, The Reluctant Spoonie
We’re not the same, you and me
Because I have a disability.
I know what you’re going to say-
that I shouldn’t let it get in my way.
There are many things that you can’t see
about living with a disability.
Extra costs and meds that don’t work
In addition to every doctor being a jerk.
Less options are available to me
because I have a disability.
From buying a car, getting a job, to having a spouse
and even how often I get to leave the house.
My life is different, that’s all
It’s not better or worse than yours.
We’re not the same, you and me.
So, stop expecting us to be.
