Butterfly with a broken wing – Promote Yourself


  The child’s face shone innocence and joy

His mum cried with pride when she heard him sing

His impediment wouldn’t hold back her precious boy

A child with a disability is like a butterfly with a broken wing


Whether he’s deaf, blind or lame

Sympathy wont help, won’t do anything,

All he needs is a true friend, worthy of the name

To help spread his damaged wing.


Wonder not whether he’s big, small, fat or thin,

He’s just as beautiful as those who are able

Look beyond the broken façade at the love within

Discern his heart, disregard his label


Harry Toye
