“Honor The Spot”
Please keep spots free,
for those in wheelchairs,
For those in need,
Who need less walking.

So lets start talking ,
About all the walking,
For people who served,
And people with disabilities.

Honor the spot,
In the parking lot,
On the dot,
For people in need.

“Helping Out Our Heros”
They fought for our freedom.
It shattered their minds.
Their bodies were broken.
Some met their demise.
To those still here,
Constricted by wheels,
We gave you a spot to park.
A spot that’s safe to roll out of your cars.
And to those who take our veterans special spots,
We will help you understand why you should not.
These spots are for those we should respect.
Not those we should overlook and neglect.

“Disrespected and Dishonored”
I arrived at the field
Obstacles everywhere
Each slow roll longer than the last
Rolling
Rolling
I passed the whellchair ramp
No longer accessible
Blocked by ignorance and a 4×4 pickup truck
“Honor Veterans” they say
Where’s my honor?
With no way to get to the store
I retreat to my car
And leave ashamed
Of an injury
I suffered from protecting
The very disrespect I face
That I hope others will not experience
Ever

“My Home”
A million spots but that one is mine
It fills the void I hold deep inside
A million words describe what that spot means to me
Acceptance, belonging, change, adversity

I’m not afraid to use my wheelchair
as long as that symbol is there
It lets me know there are people who love & truly care
This spot is not your free parking zone

This spot is where I belong, its my home
My home…


Wonderful thanks for giving of all your talents, included for all to enjoy!
