Street signsBy: Hayley McWilliams, Thomas Tallis Secondary School, Year 10
Laughing, giggling, chatting, all in a good mood.
Suddenly our moods changes
We walking on and on, without saying a word
Everyone staring at us with those big beady eyes, like a hawk,
as if we have done something wrong.
We carry on and on and again we are in a good mood
Again goes BANG!
I feel like I want to shout out to everyone
“Haven’t you seen Sign Language before?”
“Have you not met anyone like us?”
But I know I can’t
Everyone is staring at us again.
We feel different inside but do we care?
Some of us do, some of us don’t.
We walk into a street enjoying ourselves then it’s like we came from somewhere else.
Déjà vu, everything starts again.
I don’t want this.
BANG, BANG, BANG!
How do we know what they are thinking?
Why is this all starting again?
Have I been sent back in time?
I want to get out of here.
