A Special Instrument

Dedicated to all those beautiful people that are bound, for whatever reason, in a wheelchair.

Look at me with loving eyes,
Or look at me with scorn,
Look at me the way you like,
For how I have been born.

I may not be six feet tall,
With blonde or wavy hair,
I am just a human soul,
And trapped within this chair.

I may not have graceful form,
And I may twitch about,
I am made by God divine,
Of that I have no doubt.

He has special plans for me,
And things that I must do,
Many great and wondrous things,
Until the day Iím through.

Look at me the way you like,
But through my God above,
Iím a special instrument,
Of His great truth and love.

Dave... In a world where we take so much for granted, we want what we do not need. You show us that things are the way they are and we should find beauty and purpose... no matter what the circumstance. Greg

I love this poem. My favorite line is the last one. I must say I am having a hard time relating to this poem except in the fact that I hate being judged for my outside appearance. I talk about it in my poem called beauty. But I is great how you can relate to your friends even though its not you yourself who is disabled. Great write, good job, thanks,

This is a touching piece, and very well put! I checked with Mary, and your meter was perfect.

It's sad that people have to stare at someone who is different. If only they could accept it. That person in the chair has no choice but to accept it. Those of us WITH a choice will be judged by the choices we make.

Thank you for this.

This is really awesome, that's what bugs me a lot these days is people judge others based on looks. But another thing that bugs me is that the people who get judged let themselves be swayed by that, but maybe I'm not looking at it right, I'm not sure... but from the way I look at it people shouldn't be bothered if others judge them because they are why they are and they should just accept that because they're not going to be able to change if God has plans for them in the form they're in.

Anyway, great job this was really good, but I found the rythm off from time to time, maybe it's just me though.
