I may not share your gift of sight
I may not hear your name
I may not move as free as you
I don't quite look the same
And yet I love and laugh and live
And try, day after day.
Deep down you know I'm just like you
So why do you turn away?
Your stairs and doors won't let me in
They barricade my way
Yet I've the right to work, to live
I have my role to play.
I may be slow to understand
I may not stand as tall
But why should your indifference
Make me live behind a wall.
Why do you block our freedom
Why make us fight these fights
We are your brothers, sisters, children, friends
And like you we have our rights.
