To Honor My Disability

I Require that my disability is honored.

And yet, you get angry with me because I can’t.

Your able-bodied self can’t imagine being disabled.

You think I reject you when I say no to your plans.

Your plans are flawed, I can’t possibly stand, walk, sit or give that much.

I just can’t.
