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!

Dear ——-,

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.

 

 

                           Soccer

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.

 

                           Goal!

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.

 

                        Puppies

Soft and fluffy,

Cute and sweet,

Oh how I wish I hahd a rhythm to this beat!
