Yes, I am happy.
Yes, I am sad.
But what can I do?
People say I should be happy because I am deaf and I don’t have to pay for bus fee, or go on free trip.
People say I should be sad because I am deaf and I can’t hear, or I can’t speak.
Whoa, dude, they better be quiet, because I am not the reason for my emotions, they are. Playing with my life and making choices, what about they go away and do something good for their life, because I AM!
Look at me now, making poems and expressing myself. I am Nadeem Islam and this is me!
I am an actor, and high achieving person, don’t wanna brag but I am Nadeem Islam and this is who I am!
So if you wanna say something, keep it to yourself. You don’t wanna release me because I am like raging bull. So watch out for Nadeem Islam!
