Condemned - Poem by Emerito Embuscado

Everyone is free to choose their destiny.
But not a child born with disability.
Condemned, before judgment was rendered;
We suffer for crimes we never pondered.

I pray for mercy and understanding,
Grant us respite from all our suffering.
Spare the innocent, punish the guilty,
Our refuge is in God's equality.

Our life's battle and struggle continue,
We'll hope eternally for change that's new.
If not the grace for a new beginning;
Perhaps, a chance to make life worth living.

But opportunity does not exist,
Where social discriminations persist.
I wish they wouldn't see us differently.
Because we were created uniquely.
