Please Don't Stare - A Poem regarding disability submitted by ebb.
Please Don't Stare
Please don't stare when you see me walking by
Prolonged looks and snidely remarks they only make me cry
I cant help being born a differently
My disfigurement is only a tiny part of me
But it can cause me sorrow and pain so many times
When people look at me like I've committed many crimes
Nobody is perfect and many faults cannot be seen
But mine is on show to everyone because of an undeveloped gene
Its OK to look at me and to yourself then wonder why
But please don,t stare and leer at me cos inside my heart does cry
