"I'm too imaginative for my own good."

Where am I?
It's dark
am I nothing
or am I just here

Are there others like me
I can not see
is there anything to see

What is that
is it something I am supposed to see
why can I not see it
am I different from others like me?
Or am I just here

Where did these words come from
these words I think
these words I whisper
am I a person
or am I just here

Why do I see nothing
Why do I not hear a thing
Is there something to hear

What is that
Sound I hear it
is it beautiful
I wish I could hear it
am I different from others like me
can they hear it

I envy them
but what is that emotion
I do not know
Is there anything in this world
Is there anything to feel
to know

I can not see
I can not hear
does that make me different
am I a person to everyone
or am I just here
I do not want to be left behind
I wish to be more than
just here

I had a day where I was just there. then I thought about all of the deaf-blind children in the world. I wondered what it was like to be them. To not hear, to not see, to just be there.
