Poems and Pictures
'I am from Bristol, born and bred'
I am from…
Bristol, born and bred.
I am white and disabled.
I am a woman.
Bristol gave me a special school,
Before a main stream education.
I was supported
Bristol is an inclusive community,
Acting groups and a lovely theatre company
I am included.
Bristol gave me friends and neighbours,
From close by and far away.
Kenyan, Burkinabe, Polish,
West Indian, French and Pakistani.
I am grateful
Bristol gives me great food and fashion,
Exciting and unusual films and events.
I am lucky.
This is what it's like to live in Bristol
I am a white disabled woman,
I am supported, included, grateful and lucky
To live independently
This is me and I like it!
