Being Deaf

Being Deaf

By: Sian Johnson, Alun School, Year 7

I can’t help being deaf.
People say “push your hearing aid in” because it whistles a lot.
People shout at me because I didn’t hear the word they said.

I find being deaf is boring.
The don’t know what it’s like being deaf.
Going to hospital,
Going to school and going to the base
And not going to your friends.

I don’t want any friends because I feel happy on my own.
Some of them laugh at me especially the boys.
They’re always saying and signing “you are a naughty little deaf girl.”
I don’t do anything about it.

My sisters say to me deaf swear words.
My twin sister, we’re very different.
But I don’t mind anyway.
I can’t help being deaf.
