People talk to me as if I am a child
I am an adult,
Look at my eyes and talk to me as an adult.
People treat me as if my feelings don’t matter
I feel things,
I hurt inside when things happen.
People won’t even let me try
I want the chance to try,
I might make mistakes; I will keep trying.
People do not see me; they treat me like I am invisible
I am here,
I want people to look at me.
People tell me what to do all the time
I can make decisions,
I am able to think for myself.
People treat me like a non-person
I am a human being,
I am not a mistake.
