I am Strong Enough to Stand By David Cluff

I am deaf…Can’t hear

But I am strong enough to stand

I may be different but I know who I am

I can communicate in a thousand ways for you to hear my view

I got a Cochlear Implants to help me hear your voice

I know I am deaf

But I am strong enough to stand

Standing for who I know to be

No one can change me or tell me who I am to be

I am strong enough to stand…

To stand in a world that is falling down…

Trying to pull me away from who I am

But I am trying to be strong in who I am

I am deaf and I found a way to hear my mother’s voice calling my name

I hear my father’s voice asking for a tool while under the sink

I am strong enough to fight the insurance, even though they may not understand who I am

I am strong enough to stand

Standing for who I am

I know I am deaf and no one can change that

When I feel like crashing down I hold on to my Heavenly Father’s hand never letting go…

When I feel strong enough to stand I still look upward to Him for the light

I am strong enough to be who I am meant to be.

I am a deaf teen with Cochlear Implants

(Everyone is different on how they handle their deafness.)
