Beautiful Boy by John Lennon

I am hard of hearing and every day I face stigmatization for it. What people fail to realize is that I am a person just like everyone else. I am certainly also not incompetent just because I have a disability. So don’t judge.  Open your heart to people with disabilities, they may surprise you in many ways. I chose this song because even though I cant hear well, music is truly my life. This is the song that was played in Mr. Holland’s Opus when he learned to appreciate the value of sign language as a way of communicating to his deaf son.
Close your eyes,
Have no fear,
The monsters gone,
He’s on the run and your daddy’s here,Beautiful,
Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,Before you go to sleep,
Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way,
It’s getting better and better,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,

Out on the ocean sailing away,
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both,
Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go,
But in the meantime,

Before you cross the street,
Take my hand,
Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,

Beautiful, beautiful,
Beautiful Boy,
Darling Sean.
