Lucys story #spartacusstories #spartacusreport

 Look, can you see me?
No, can you really see me?
Look beyond the clothes I wear
And look into my life.

Hiding in the shadows
Is the truth I try to hide
That the life I have
Isn’t the life you see

I wear the mask well
To those who don’t know
I don’t look disabled
You never could tell

I don’t like to admit
that I struggle with life
but day to days hard
And iv wanted to quit

I don’t like to dwell
On the negative stuff
but it’s a part of my life
that I feel I should tell

no one knows im disabled
or claim DLA
I act quite normal
(when my conditions stable)

Im ashamed to say
Goes on some things
I shouldn’t have to pay

Again its quite private
And hidden away
I don’t like to say this
But I need it to stay

That’s why im campaigning
And making a fuss
Without this allowance
Id be at a loss
