Would that I were halt;
Would that I were lame.
Needed a crutch;
Needed a cane.
Would that my handicap
showed loud and plain.
I see the looks
of disgust and disdain
whenever I park
in the handicapped lane.
But you cannot measure
the amount of my pain.

It doesn’t show,
except on my face,
this pain that I feel
with each measured pace.
And the pain is compounded
by the silent disgrace
of needing to park
in the handicapped space.
I inwardly wince
at the look on your face,
when you see me park
in the handicapped place.

Please do not judge me,
nor think me unfair;
I wish I could walk
with you everywhere,
but I’ve trouble in moving
from here to there,
though I look as if
I could park anywhere.
Disability’s diverse,
so please try to take care.
Not to assume
that it’s just not there.
