    They ride the short bus
    They're the ones you call slow.
    Inside them is a world
    Most of us will never know.
    Made fun of, or ignored
    trying to fit in, or not,
    square peg, round hole
    giving it everything they've got.
    Who knows why these children
    were given an extra cross to bear,
    some things are not explainable,
    some things are just unfair.
    All children are special
    all children need love
    some children need a little extra
    care from the one above.
    Listen to God's whispers,
    they're blessings sent your way,
    while you ride that little bus
    and throughout the day.

    indeed sistah these are the children
    the very ones who awaken for us
    to be there comfort and hope as
    a little extra goes into it
    i come to love a lot of them
    and visit twice a week to help feed
    still life after NURSING .................

    It is SO sweet of you to address this subject, watz - and this is such a tight piece of work. One thing I have noticed about mentally challenged folks is that many of them are much nicer than most people are on a daily basis. We could all take a lesson from their kind natures.
