Who am I

By Trish Hubschman

March 2022


Note: This poem is an acrostic. It spells out DEAFBLIND.


Disabled, I am, no denying that.

Except I’m a person too.

Almost always people fail to see that.

Few even notice I exist.

But I do and I want to shout it out.

Look at me. Here I am.

I’m like everybody else.

Not perfect, but nobody is.

Disabilities don’t change what’s inside.

    this poem was hard to write. I wanted to write a poem in this style but I didn’t know what to write it about, then it hit me. I’m deafblind, so I decided to try my hand at doing an acrostic for deafblind. It wasn’t easy but in the end it came out great.

    1. Hi Trish, Marlene and I both think it’s great.
