She stands straight and tall,
Though deep inside, she’s crumbling.
She wants to grow but feels small.
-Too many expectations she’s been jumbling-
She wears a mask of courage and cheer,
Not knowing others can sense her struggle.
She wants acceptance but feels fear.
-Too many life issues to juggle-
She tries to be truthful,
Feels honesty is turned away.
She wants to care, not be ruthful.
-Too many thoughts of what they’ll say-
She’s limited with disability.
Her whole life, never in admittance.
Dishonesty to self, an instability.
Time to redeem herself, permit full acceptance.
