Down Syndrome Creed

My face may be different,

But my feelings the same,

I laugh, I cry,

I take pride in my gains.

I was sent here among you

To teach you to love.

As God in the heavens

Looks down from above.

To Him I’m no different,

His love knows no bounds.

It’s those here among you

In cities and towns,

That judge me by standards

That man has imparted.

But the family He’s chosen

Will help me get started.

For I’m one of His children,

So special and few,

That came here to learn

The same lessons as you.

That love is acceptance,

It must come from the heart.

We all have the same purpose,

Though not the same start.

The Lord gave me life

To live and embrace.

And I’ll do it as you do,

Just at my own pace.
