I believe God watches all life.
He helps man and animals to live.
By creating life and things necessary to live.
He comes in my body.
I feel I am doing some jobs for him.
I help people to have good time and fun.
People want to be talked and listened to.
I take time to talk and I take time to listen.
Sometimes I am a clown.
I do this to help people laugh.
I do not like people unhappy.
I feel God gave me this one thing.
I can’t talk the way others do.
I talk with my eyes, laughter, body,
and acceptance of other people.
I feel this is God’s way to explain
Some people are disabled
And some people are not.
God allow me to have a gift which is
To reach out others
