Finding out I’m deaf

By: Harriet Amos, Thomas Tallis Secondary School, Year 11

OH MY GOD I CAN’T HEAR YOU!

WHAT DID YOU SAY!

WHAT WAS THAT ABOUT THE OTHER DAY

WHY DO PEOPLE MUMBLE

EVERYTHING IS SUCH A JUMBLE!!!

WHAT DID YOU SAY WAS IT DAY, THEY, MAY!!!!!!

LOOK AT ME SO I CAN SEE

WHAT YOUR LIPS ARE SAYING TO ME

 

THEY SAY I’M DEAF! YEAH WHAT DOES THAT MEAN

I’M ONLY A GIRL NOT EVEN A TEEN!!

SEVEN YEARS OLD TRYING TO UNDERSTAND

A LIFE WITHOUT VERY LITTLE SOUND

 

OOPS IN EAR THEY SIT

SWITCHED ON TO HIGH PITCH!!!

WHY ARE YOU ALL SHOUTING!!

YOUR LIPS ARE EVEN POUTING!!!

 

I CAN HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR

I HAVE MY NEW AIDS IN MY EARS

 

IT TOOK ME SOME TIME

TO ADJUST TO MINE

BUT NOW I WOULDN’T BE WITHOUT THEM

AT ANY TIME!!!!!
