Down Syndrome Creed

My face may be different
but my feelings the same.
I laugh and I cry
And take pride in my games.
I was sent here among you
To reach and to love
As God in the Heavens
looks down from above.

To Him I’m no different
His love knows no bound
It’s those here among you
in cities and towns.
That judge me by standards
That man has imparted.
But this family I’ve chosen
Will help me to get started.

For I am one of the children
So special and few
That came here to learn
The same lesson as you.

That love is acceptance
It must come from the heart
We all have the same purpose
But not the same start.

The Lord gave me life
To live and embrace
And I’ll do it as you do
But at my own pace.
