Inner and Outer Limits
At first glance
They are dismissed as
Different from the norm .. even scary
People mutter ‘retard’
In a condescending manner,
Assuming inferiority ..
Their ignorance is palpable
Those with intellectual disabilities
Do not live in a vacuum ..
They know an insult when they hear one
Inferior? Not on your life!
There are lessons to be learned
From those we thoughtlessly label
For them, inner and outer limits have no meaning
