Given a chance

They told us he was different
And we’ll have to be patient
They labeled him at birth
That in this world he had no worth
They said he might not walk
They said he might not talk
But if you met Adam today
He would surprise you in many ways
They used to call them “Mongoloid”
It was a shame to be avoided
Now they’re called “Exceptional”
But never would they call them “Normal”
With love and guidance
He will go the distance
And when his goals are achieved
You will not be deveived.
Because he needs more time to adapt
People say he’s handicap.
But will he be given the chance to learn?
Is this mother’s only concern.
