Sitting is her only choice
She rolls slowly down the halls
She doesn’t really have a voice
No one ever seems to hear her calls

Strap on the gloves of black
Pushing and pushing all day
Her teachers think she tends to slack
She really has a lot to say

It’s harder than you think to be her 
To not be able to walk
And not be able to see
People tend to think she can’t talk

She wishes the world could see it
What it’s like to live on wheels
You can’t do anything alone
You need help and more help…..

Note: That last one is just be running out of rhymes but wanting to say it. It really sucks and I wish things were better

Keep_reading 🙂 🙂
Love ❤ ❤

    Sue Austin! I love her. I watched her ted talk on deep sea diving in a wheelchair recently and how inspiring it was. Your poem does resonate with some of what she had to say. When people see her in wheelchair they think she is limited. However to her the wheelchair was a new found freedom. She had a lot to do just like your poem’s character has a lot to say. Sue went ahead and did everything she wanted to do. She showed the world what she could do. I hope your poem’s character speaks up and tells the world what she has to say :).
