Jackie’s motto

Freedom is achieved

You think you are good and bright… but you aren’t
But you stare at me as though I am odd… you are ignorant
I may look odd and behave different… but I am intelligent
I am an adult now… Yay I am free
I am intelligent… Yay I go to uni
I have a boyfriend… Yay I am in love
I have many friends… Yay I am blessed
My life is rich and full… Can you say that?
Disability does not hold me back
Freedom is achieved.

I live a great life… full of fun and love
I sometimes sit quiet… but that is ok too
I am brave… You find that hard to believe?
I battle anxiety every day… but I am winning
Crazy fun and all of that… what better way to live
Something troubles me… I have friends to hug me
Family close and dear… How lucky am I?
Crushing weights you envisage… they do not exist
Disability does not hold me back
Freedom is achieved.

People think disability is a major problem… it isn’t
Disability is only about limitations… because the world values able bodies
All bodies should be valued… for what they can offer
Freedom is only achieved… when all diversity is valued
Freedom is paramount… trust me it is
Freedom is stupendous… indeed it is
Freedom is awesome… Yay celebration is due
True achievements are superb… I know I do
Disability does not hold me back
Freedom is achieved.
