Entry - MAG Poetry Prize 2010


by mary dolan

I can communicate though I may not talk,
I can get around though I may not walk,
I can visualise though I may not see,
I can live a normal life though special needs be.

I may need your help from time to time,
But I want my life to be just that, mine!
I have many dreams which I wish to fulfill,
Please help me to achieve them by overcoming each hill.

I know life won't be easy, at times very tough,
But I will learn to always take the smooth with the rough.
You may not realise it but you have such an important role to play
To help me achieve my dreams , goals and wishes day after day.
