Being Deaf

Being Deaf

By: Denise Ekugwum, St John's and St Clements, Year 6

I know that I’m different from others,
I know they hear more than me,
I know I don’t really bother,
Because I don’t really mind.

But being deaf is fine,
You don’t have to change,
Just be yourself,
And just be proud!

There’s lots of people like you,
You don’t need to hide it,
You’re not meant to be ashamed,
Because it’s to you,

Hearing aids are another thing,
They’re for your good,
Some people doesn’t know about them,
So show it off!

It’s great to be deaf,
Because you can do lots of things,
Everyone has a special talent,
You’re just like everyone!
