Different Abilities

This is a poem that is both cute and thought provoking, written by Michael AutismSanta Miller who started a wonderful program Toys AUcross America with his autistic son. If you have never heard of it I strongly encourage you to visit the page and help him get the word out and get more toys to more autistic kids. (Used with his permission)

Different ability by Autism Santa

Is it truly a disability,
If a Giraffe can’t climb a tree?
If a Monkey cant swim,
Does it really bother him?
If a Lion can’t swing,
From a vine overhead?
Is he still the king,
Will he still get fed?
If an Elephant can’t jump,
As far as a Kangaroo?
Is he not stronger,
Than both me and you?
I do not like to call it,
A disability.
I’d rather just call it.
“Different ability”!
