In Plain Sight
You were bound by bars made of steel.
That held your body rigid in its case.
Or perhaps your chair had a set of iron wheels.
Keeping you physically in place.
We saw these things my friends and I.
The nuts and bolts of it we thought.
Oh! But we missed the life in your eyes.
The joy of what you could do brought.
Each task harder than one before yet you'd try.
