Gifted beyond being special

This is for the wonderful kids and people born with a gift like no other.
They are not special, they are just gifted beyond being special.

My name is.......GIFTED?

And I am Gifted
It's no one's fault how
I was born,
and the particular characters
I have to live with...
I'm gifted!

My name is..........TALENTED?

And I have a special talent,
so I might be slower than others
but I manage to finish my task through
I might stutter at times
it may be hard for you to understand my writing
it's yours that's abnormal
it's yours that requires special translation

My name is..........SPECIAL EFFECTS?

Maybe I'm born with side effects
of physical defects
that affects my way of living
I can do what you can do
and still function with less stress of living
You can laugh at me
but when you see me laughing back
the reality is the joke is on you
We are the ones suffering
cause this world is abnormal
and we are THE REAL NORMAL, that was born in it

Did I tell you My Name is..........?

Gifted beyond special


Who is the retarded one,
or you?

So when I roll in my wheel chair
crutches climbing steep stairs
loud noises sounding everywhere
hearing aids in my ear
eyes completely impaired
I'm still standing here
and I will be standing even when you fall
because I will be somewhere as someone

My name is...........Normal

Gifted beyond being special
So what is your excuse and who has the problem?

  1. Excellent write! :) I have an aunt that has been diagnosed as mentally retarded and a nephew whois autistic, so this piece definitely touches home!

  2. Mannnnnnnnnnn this is TOUCHING!!!! and sooo true...I hate when people make fun of someone else, regardless of the reason...Why be sooo cruel? To make themselves look better when all it does is make them look stupid...
