Brave

Summary: Are disabled people brave or lazy? Trying to do anything independent or normal results in the cliche ‘arent they brave’ comments. Doing nothing and being dependant gets the ‘lazy’ label. My advice is be ‘brave’ but ingore the plaudits until they are justified and genuine.

Venture out of the cave.
To be told I’m brave.
It’s not the way I behave.

Endeavour to do mundane tasks.
Feel that I have to ask.
There’s a person under this mask.

Travelling over nervous ground.
Loud eyes don’t make a sound.
Whatever I do is profound.
