My Wheelchair Does Not Define Me

Life has not been easy sitting in a wheelchair.
I’ve had to accept not only being “different”,
but also doing things different.
And yet, my wheelchair does not define me.
I have hopes, dreams, and goals just like anyone else
I plan to reach all of these one day.
I will not let my wheelchair define me.
One day I’m going to leave this ol’ world.
No longer will I be pitied by those who say
“Look at that poor little girl”
No longer will I be labeled as a cripple or disabled person.
For I will enter those Pearly Gates and be made whole again
And I will walk with Jesus on that Golden Street of Glory
Where my wheelchair will no longer define me!
