Why Do You Stare?
Inspired by a disable client.
Do you know what it is like for people to stare?
If you knew the pain you cause I don’t think you would dare.
Sometimes the way I look can be such a nightmare for me-
If I could pay to change it without a doubt I’d pay the fee.
Alas! life is not that plain and simple
There is no concealing it, as you could a pimple.
Yet no matter how we complain the public remains the same
And to me, that is a painful added strain.
I wrote this poem hoping that society will stop and think,
I’m not a piece of rubbish to flush down the sink.
Your constant gawping is thoughtless and unkind-
At times I wonder if life would be better if I were blind.
Regardless people like me are born every day,
And there is nothing we can do to transform our way.
So I pray that one-day technology might help me to change-
Because this system is so unkind to those who look strange.
