Q18: Writing With Grace

Part Six:  A Big News


“My Real Truth

I don’t know how to describe me as a real person
Sometimes I can’t even control my hot anger
Like a volcano’s magma fire anger
There is something more about my dad’s father —
he calls me a Down syndrome He tries to
persuade my dad, David, to send me away in a
leaving institute
For me it’s okay to have Down syndrome but or the other people
I hate them to say that
My real truth is that I am smart and the whole world doesn’t know and believe in me.”
