Having the type of
Wheels I have
Can be like
A prison that
You can’t escape from
Getting the stares
Feeling limited
Gets to me sometimes
Then I remember one thing
I am who I am
I can’t change that
The wheels don’t control me
I control them

Wow I LOVE the ending. It really hit me with the best kind of force. It's so true! I also like the author's note you put in. Readers usually like to read where the poem came from, or what inspired you to write it. Very nice job! Check out some of my work, too if you'd like. Keep writing!
