A Silly Poem, Adam Bojelian 2010
At my school the green fish digs a hole and chases the dog down the road.In the yard the big dinosaur laughs out loud and tells me a joke.I laugh.Later that day I saw a bug eat my teacher for lunch.The lion reads a book in a tree and then, a scientist with a monkey drives a car too fast through the air.In my dream, I catch a spaceship to the moon.I go off looking for hot dogs.
Due to the severity of Adam's impairment, he communicates through blinking. This includes writing. It can take a day for him to write one line, a month to complete a verse. Despite his physical challenges, Adam loves creating imaginative poetry. He is an inspiration, proving that when your soul is born of writing, nothing can stop the words from coming.(c) Adam Bojelian
