My disability
CP
Stands for cerebral palsy
In medical terms
But I think
It means these things
Capable person
Caring person
Courageous person
I'm all three
You have to remember this
It is okay to have this
Or another disability
Just don't let them
Take over your life
It is just part of your
Life
You just have to
Live with it
I've learned the easy way
And the hard way
You can still do a lot
Just not everything
Just live your life
To the fullest
Be happy
