Thinking of Helen Keller

 

 

To impress in any full able body art really

You need to master a especial natural ability;

To over come a disability and excel in creativity,

You need a sort of supernatural ability.

 

For example, to be able to express what you can see, feel,

Taste, hear or smell

Is amazing;

To be able to communicate well even in verses

In the absence of basic senses

Is mind bugging.

 

So when I hear that someone can see when in darkness

And/or can hear in a world that is soundless,

I do not think of a fortune teller,

I think of Helen Keller.
