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
