POEM IN COMMEMORATION OF WORLD DOWN SYNDROME DAY) UNIQUELY ME

Have you once met me in the street and fidgeted in discomfort?

Have our eyes met and you averted your glance?

Have you avoided contact

But still found that yours is a memory haunted by my sweet innocence?

Yes… Maybe you have

 

 

Have our shoulders brushed

But your eyes remained downcast?

Have I been a secret, kept in the shadows

Hidden

that you are ashamed to expose

Lest you clashed with harmless critique?

Yes… Maybe I have

 

Have you heard the song on the radio- my favorite song?

Have you seen the hurt in my eyes?

Have you sensed what I wanted to say- what was wrong?

Have you heard my silent cries?

Yes… Maybe you have

 

Do  I look  slightly different?

Do my tasks take a different route?

Yes… you do notice

But it’s not the extra chromosome which sparks the malice

Or the medical term down syndrome which is of extreme  importance

Maybe what confuses and agitates

Is not the observable difference

But the knowledge that we all are one… we all are humans

But I still am who I am Uniquely me…
