Most often, many of us humans tend to forget that being Handicapped surpasses; a condition that markedly restricts our ability to function mentally, physically and socially. Other aspects of being blindfolded to this are our "Humanness". Embedded in this is our own weakness and failures that confront us at each every moment of our life.

Handicapped are we all


In the events of life appears

The lives of peopleThis angle of sight

Leaves the wonderer in wander

A complete distinction

Of one to the other

We have the A’s, the B’s

The C’s, the D’s


There it dawns on me;

which of these categories

am I?

I get obstructed.

Seen from afar these appears blur

At a little shift it comes

To none, none and none

Still living in illusionary proportions

Down in one way resonates

Our own side of “downness”

We are caught with few words

In wounded bodies to speak

Many do not speak at all

Seeing through the smiles

Friendly words and gestures

Love and intimacy

Of a resentful heart gives hope

Let us be ready to change

Try new things

Adapt to new people

Create a lasting bond

And help to grow in




And self-reliance

    This poem truly signifies the uniqueness of each of us but one that makes us all beautiful. We are all handicapped indeed if we do not see it this way.
