I pray for the labeled child

I pray for the labeled child;

That child who is gifted and talented.

No longer can she be lazy and idle

So much more is expected

Of those as gifted and talented as she.

I pray for the labeled child;

That child who is learning disabled.No longer will the world expect brilliance

No longer will someone tell him to reach for the stars

Because that is where greatness is found.

I pray for the labeled child;

That is dyslexic.

Reading--oh, the joy of reading!

Will always be hard for her to find.

no matter that she can recite--no sing--

Mary Had a Little Lamb,

She won't be able to read it,

At least not without difficulty.

She will learn that all her friends

Who laugh and cry and wonder about books

Can do so because they are not dyslexic.

I pray for the labeled child;

That child who is A.D.D.

An unorganized bubble of hyperactivity

No longer will someone say "You can do this;

Oh it may be hard, but it is within you to do this."

A dose of medicine now replaces the need for that inner effort

And eliminates the possible victory.

I pray for the labeled child;

That child who is emotionally handicapped.

That child who rebels

Because she should rebel.

The child who acts out

Because there is nowhere else

For the hurt and anxiety and fear to go.

The child who is diagnosed "sick,"

When perhaps her actions are the one true sign of sanity

In the demented world in which she is forced to live.

I pray for the child of no label.

In a system, which marks so, many special,

This child neither shines nor demands.

For this child life has been neither harsh nor generous

This is one who "makes" the teacher's day

Because there are so many children who need real attention.
