'I Am' -- a Poem About Identity and Disability

I am stronger than you know
I am weaker than I show
I am me I am unique
I am sassy I am chic
I am shy around those I don’t know
I am not afraid to speak up wherever I go
I am a contradiction in itself
I am me I am myself
I am more than my disability
I am not defined by my CP
I am young but I am wise
I am perfect in God’s eyes.
