What I Wish The World Knew…

What I wish the world knew…one day there came across my news feed on Facebook a piece about a musical. This was an extraordinary piece about an extraordinary composer – Scott Evans Davis – and a musical he wrote…with the input from the students at P94 School for Autism. Davis interviewed the students and, based on their words, wrote the lyrics and music to NEXT. The link below says better than any words of mine could ever say about what special needs children – and their parents – wish the world knew…since  Mr. Davis and the students at P94 say it far better than I could…I give you:
“If The World Only Knew” by Scott Evans Davis

IF THE WORLD ONLY KNEW
by Scott Evans Davis

Every day seems like the day before
Keeping to myself but wanting so much more
I could be a painter
Or in the hall of fame
I can almost hear them calling out my name
But when people look at me
That’s not what they see
If the world only knew what I could do
They would be astounded
If the world only knew what I could do
I would be surrounded
If the world only knew what I could do
Maybe I’d be free
If they would see so there’s much more in me
I put up my guard to deal with fear
When things get too hard then I disappear
I wish I could tell them
And make them understand
Being different wasn’t something I had planned
But when people look at me
They don’t want to see
If the world only knew what I could do
I would be respected
If the world only knew what I could do
I would not be rejected
If the world only knew what I could do
Then I could be free
Then they would see all that I have in me
I could show them all that everyone is different
I could stand up tall instead of run away
If there was no world I’d have nothing standing in my way
And I would be still only me
If the world only knew what I could do
I would shine in glory
If the world only knew what I could do then I’d tell a different story
If the world only knew what I could do
Finally they would see 
I am just what I’m supposed to be. . .

This has been a Finish The Sentence Friday post, hosted by the ever-awesome Kristi Rieger Campbell of Finding Ninee.
