Tatenda's poem

Tatenda's poem

“Hello guys, my name is Tatenda Chimombe from L'Arche Zimbabwe. I am from Brook House. The reason why I wrote this poem was to encourage my fellow members not to look down upon themselves, but to motivate them and to see that they can do anything in life, whatever they want.

I am not a disability but I am a person
I am a person who is trying to achieve my dream but as much as I try,
people keep reminding me of my challenges 
I cry and I lose focus to my dream
As I cry I hear my inner voice
Whispering to me, saying,
You are a person not a disability 
Keep reminding yourself that you are a person not a disability
Today believe in yourself and you can reach the new heights which are immeasurable
Believe in yourself and you can make the world consider you as a person not a disability
Believe in yourself and you can make the complicated things simple.

 

I thank you.”
