Listen to Me (Deaf-related poem)Please listen to me carefully,
Listen to them around you,
All the sounds you hear.
Don't take this as a granted,
You see me speak with my hands,
Voiceless and silence,
Not a single sound I can hear what you can hear.
Don't you dare to mock me of the language I speak,
To insult me with an old name haunting us throughout the history,
to taunt me of my long-life suffering.
All of the sounds I 'hear' is special,
But you cannot hear them,
How blindingly you are to everything I see,
The same beauty in the different sense.
You don't even know me,
But you judged me beforehand,
And you called me dumb,
How cruel you were I will never forget.
You see me now as a fair woman,
With a loving and strong willed soul,
How flawed we both share,
As human beings we both are.
There is no real difference in us,
You have both of your ears to listen,
I have both of my eyes to see,
Only the difference is our perspective of the world.
Keep in Touch!
