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!
Being deaf feels like natural to me
I am very confident even thought I am deaf
All my family are proud that
I have made the most of my deafness
Being deaf is hard work
But would I change it???
I really don’t know as
I do not know any different!!!
Every day I try not to get stressed and angry
While I tried to understand what they said
But it difficult for me
Because if someone talks to me very fast
It makes me confused and do not understand
Every night sometimes I’m scared
Because I feel like someone come closer to me
Like creeping like the floorboards are moving
Sometimes I feel strange
Because I feel so very different
Especially when around my hearing friends
Family and friends are important
To everyone and they are very proud of me
They care about me
I love being with my family and friends
Being deaf is BRILLANT! I am proud to be deaf!
Excited to communicate with my friends,
In sign language.
No deaf person is stupid they just can’t hear well.
Go and learn sign language so you can talk to deaf people.
Deaf is fun and freedom
Everyone talks using sign language,
Find out how many deaf people there are in whole world!
Implants are important
Never be scared
Don’t be shy
English help me to improve
And listening too
Friends are deaf too
“Come on, what are you, deaf”?
“Yeah I AM actually!”
“What is this… a joke?”
“No, I’m serious!”
“You having a laugh?”
I can’t hear a drum roll!
“What did you say?”
Come on turn it up
You know you want to!
Tell people you really are what you are
When you are on stage they give you the script
they tell you the words to say
I’m not backstage
I really AM deaf
Some people Who play Dr Who are really doctors
I’m not acting, it’s true
THat means I won’t be getting an Oscar for this part
(not like Colin Firth!)
I AM who I AM
You are Who you are
I AM who I AM, OK? ( shout this)
Leave it out, chill and relax
Don’t GO in the crowd.
What are you, hearing?
Yeah I AM actually
I’m hearing you saying you’re deaf
