You can say what you please,
because to your words I am deaf.
No matter how much you torture me,
never can I tell,
and even if I could,
never would I tell you what you need,
as to your enquiries I am dumb.
You can act out what you please
I am to you actions blind,
I cannot see.
You can slam my head into the dirt
for my dignity I don't mind getting hurt.
You can laugh at me,
if you think a clown is what I am trying to be.
But the truth is,
I have no choice.
I simply cannot see.
I cannot see.
I see the most beautiful things,
I see things but invisible to the sight of one’s eye.
I have no voice.
I am dumb.
I cannot speak.
Yet with nothing more than the voice inside me,
I sing the sweetest songs.
Though my voice cannot be heard,
with one note produced by my inner vocal cords
The crowd begins to roar.
I cannot hear yet I hear the melody in music,
I hear the tenderness of one’s voice
I hear the innocence in one’s heart and soul
as it screams out to me
I cannot hear.
But I know when I am welcome
the world tells me where I belong.
I may have physical instabilities,
but never will I ever do you wrong
Like anyone other than I,
In the morning don’t I arise?
Unlike most I can only love,
I don’t know how to despise.
So my heart is continuously increasing inside.
God loves the dumb
God loves the deaf
God loves the blind
And I am dumb, deaf and blind
