We Live in a World

We live in a world where Eyeth is a fantasy.
We live in a world where we are the minority.
We live in a world of irony where hearing babies sign, and Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing are denied their natural language.
We live in a world where individual identity is not only encouraged, but praised,
yet we live in a world where Deaf/Hard-of-Hearing are forced to pretend.
We live in a world where we become excellent actors and actresses.
We live in a world where we become the best guessers.
We live in a world where our hands gets pushed down and our voices are praised,
yet our needs are not heard.
We live in a world of oppression, under constant attacks of Audism.
We live in a world full of tears, pain, and misunderstandings.

We live in a world where changes are desired to be made…
Need to be made…
Must be made.

We live in a world…
