SPECIAL EDUCATION
 
 

Who are you to look at me
And try to tell me what I can be?
Listen up, you arrogant fool
I can do as well as anyone in school

You may not think I have the skills
Or that I deserve to enjoy life's thrills
But you just listen to me
I'll surprise you, you wait and see

They thought I wouldn't speak
You thought I'd never reach my peak
But look and see, I did it all
I just had to get on the ball

I can fly like a bird, and soar in the sky
You don't need to wonder why
Anyone with determination and a willing heart
Can conquer any math, literature, science, or art

A person can only do
What he or she sets her mind to
I intend to be a success
With lots of hard work, nonetheless

So don't you dare look at me
And try to tell me what I can be
I know what I can be
And I am proud to be me
