Don't see only our disabilit-ease,
by Clive Blake
Don't deny us basic facilit-ease,
Don't ignore our many abilit-ease,
Don't compound our varied difficult-ease,
Deal head-on with the harsh realit-ease.
You never know what life has in store,
You may fall one day and rise no more,
You may join our ranks, afraid, unsure,
You may write words to plead; implore.
We are not an alien race,
We have a voice, we have a face,
We have our part to play; a place.
Let us join life's lively dance,
Let us have an equal chance.
