I cherish my wheel-chair

 

 

Yes, I am in a wheel-chair,

Yet, I strive to play fair,

Whether I am participating in an Olympic

Or in a picnic.

 

Yes, I am in a wheel-chair,

Yet, I too enjoy grasping for fresh air,

Whether I am climbing mountains,

Or playing around water fountains.

 

Yes, I am in a wheel-chair,

Yet, I love helping at the country fair,

Whether making cotton candy

Or organizing the evening party.

 

Hence, I cherish fairness,

Competition,

Fresh air,

Ability awareness,

Inclusion,

And, my wheel-chair.
