"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that who ever believes in Him shall not parish but have eternal life"

-John 3:16

"God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam"

Psalms 46:1-3

The Box
They tried to fit us in
They call us freaks and idiots
Are we?

I listened to those lies
Lies that cripple me
Till I cannot stand

They told the fish to climb the tree
Called me worthless

And I believed them

I’ve tried to fit myself
into The Box
Again and again

I don't fit
Thought myself worthless

But what is The Box?
It is an Idea
A Concept
Made by a group of people
That are the

My God has not made us different so others can
Degrade us
We were made different
on Purpose

For a Purpose

We are the mighty group of Misfits
We have broken the mold
Your mold

Your box does not fit
Your mold
Traps you

You do not see us

Has you bound in Chains.
Bound hand and foot
Though you are ignorant of it

Come Dreamer, weary of your burden
Break out of
your Box

Come eat in our house

We are Human

Let us Love

The author's comments:

I have Cerebral Palsy, and I have noticed that other people see people like me as disabled or abnormal. I want to say that that is an ignorant way to think. we were all created by God, and He has said that his creation is GOOD. It is true that we do have some needs that other people might not have, but we also have strengths that other people do not, but we are human, just like you. We are as good as the rest. 

Besides who ever wanted to be average?
