Sometimes I wish

Sometimes I wish that I was missing a leg
Or had cancer or something like that
Something that would allow us all to
Lower our expectations of me
I think it would be very helpful
If we could all see
Which of my parts are damaged or missing
It might then be clear that
There might be some chronic pain involved
And we might then see my behavior
Through the generous eyes with which
We view a prosthetic device or a wig
I might even sometimes look brave
Just for making it through a day
