The take for granted

what I don't have.

Do you think about what you have got

when you

listen to your friends, look at

their faces?

You don't. They don't.

They don't know

how lucky they are

to have sight, have hearing.

Yet I am luckier.

I have no sight, but I have vision

I have no hearing but I have the ability

to listen to what is right, to hear

what they cannot.

Helen Keller
