One of the members of SWMBO's Multiple Sclerosis branch writes poetry from a disabled person's slant. Because the world is so different to those with severe difficulties, their writings sometimes give real pause for thought. I thought I'd share with you here, one of his latest...


Me? I can't walk, I can't remember,

I can't run, I can't earn, I can't do.

But, I CAN think of words, I CAN see colours,

I CAN appreciate the world.

My life is different now. It's not wrong,

Just different.

Whatever tough stuff is happening it's always worth taking a moment to appreciate what you can do.

Brilliant, positive thoughts. I've come to the conclusion that people don't intend to be insensitive;disability is just so beyond their understanding that they just don't know how to react and there's probably a good measure of fear that it might happen to them one day.
