A Handicap is no Limit to the Human Spirit
A handicap, falsely labeled,
and in its true meaning,
the human vocabulary,
seems at times, so demeaning.
By another name,
it is to be a challenge of a sort,
In the choices of life,
whether it's in a work, or in a sport.
The greats of the sciences, of art,
and of the written word,
Many to be regarded as helpless,
a limiting, that's so absurd.
Soaring beyond all imagination
and strong social restraints,
Now respected and seen as champions,
almost as saints.
Leonardo, Rodin, and Ford,
in their gifts, were all so divine,
as far, as their contributions,
and from their gifted minds.
Beethoven's Music is so angelic
and inspiring for us to hear,
Edison, Einstein, and Bell,
are all great people, we love to cheer.
Helen Keller overcame hardships,
unbelievable in their sum,
Without question, a marvelous example,
she, this marvelous teacher, to become.
Milton, Byron, and Franklin D.Roosevelt,
showed no limits in their pursuits,
A strong human spirit, and all did achieve,
was born from their own very roots.
The disabled, those who struggle in their lives,
and each in their striving just to live,
The best of us all, in their human traits,
which they all so well display,
Were not for the challenges and hardships,
that everyone has had to face,
Perhaps no tomorrow, and the joys so earned,
of this, in our human race.
Handicapped, so erroneous, in a description,
in its masked pose, it so presents,
As truth is told, and the accomplishments made,
in its repose. and for all, a recompense.
The real and revealed likeness of the finest,
and of all feelings to be shared,
a victorious climax, and a fitting fond well,
in showing that we all so cared.
