Who is afflicted?

Why s the human race so cruel?

We whisper, point and stare

We converse with other people

As if the afflicted were not there


We assume the mind is not working

If the body is not well

We never stop to think that

It could be a living hell


These people don't want pity

They want to enjoy life too

Maybe it's time we considered

Is there something we can do?


If we put in a little effort

It wouldn't be such a crime

It doesn't have to cost any money

It may just requre time


We never consider ourselves lucky

When we're able to run for a bus

It make you wonder who's affllicted

Is s them, or is it us?
