Living life to the full is sometimes hard to do,
But we know with strength we’ll pull through.
We don’t see ourselves as courageous or special,
We see ourselves as just like you.

Because I’m not just a girl in a wheelchair,
A thing to be pitied or patronised,
I am a person, with hopes & dreams,
I’m me.

You say you want a wheelchair,
Or want a ride,
Just think about it for a sec
Wouldn’t you want to be free?

So many people tell me that I am an inspiration to them but I cannot understand why. All I see is that I am living my life the only way I can. Sometimes I feel like I disappoint people and somehow don't live up to their expectations. I wonder how or if I ever can?
