They came to me and teased me

about my worn and tattered dress.

They made faces 

and said things I couldn't hear.

They laughed at me right to my face ! 

I didn't shed a tear.

 

Inside I felt triumphant !

What they said didn't bother me !

But I didn't laugh, back at them.

Not until they left.

I have a gift that protects me, you see, 

They didn't know I'm deaf !
