Dear online journal,
This is the third day I have had cerebral palsy. It has already been tough at school. Kids keep teasing me about how my feet are crooked and how I am always going to have crutches until it wears off and how I gait. Yesterday, I had to take the bus to a mall and my mom got out the wheelchair. I saw one of the kids that tease me go on the same bus.
Luckily, they didn’t see me. The driver asked me if I was handicapped and where I was going. I did not like that he was minding my own business. I still politely told him that I am handicapped and that I was going to a therapist. When I got there, the therapist told me that my abdomen was bruised. She also told me that I should get an artificial leg. I hope I can go through this well!
I have been told that you have problems with other kids. That is totally not good! Anyways, I came up with some things to help you. Since you feel left out, I think that when you ask to join them, they might say yes. If they say no, I would say “Fine” and go ask somebody to play with you. If you are not in that situation but somebody else is, I would ask them to join you. If they say no, at least you did the right thing.
I see black and white,
I feel the soft grasses,
I hear the sweet cheers of the fans.
And though that I know that I did not score,
At least I know that I tried.
I made it! I made it!
I hope my tears don’t show.
I’m crying! I’m crying!
I finally know!
I hear the crowd shouting as I turn about to face the crowd.
Soft and fluffy,
Cute and sweet,
Oh how I wish I hahd a rhythm to this beat!
