Not Your World

You say
‘I admire you for coping so well’
I say
Do you get admiration for living your life?

 

You tell me
‘It can’t be that difficult, surely?’
I say
Have you never been prevented by others from doing anything?

 

You ask
‘How on earth can you do that independently?’
I say
Like you, maybe in a slightly different way

 

You say
‘If I were in your shoes, I’d just give up’
I say
Do you really give up at every little obstacle?

 

Stop assuming you know about me
My world is not your world

Blind Pleasure

A sheep bleats
Birdsong in the trees
A light breeze
Whispers through my hair
The shadow
Of a tree
Gives coolness
The smell of lavender
Hangs in the warm air
The ears, the skin and the nose
Tell the blind enough
