is this offensive?
I am a thinker but I still act on impulse.
I am existential, but i find hope.
I am lost but still I walk,
I can see but still am blind,
I can hear but am still deaf,
I am human.
This was written by someone who isn't deaf or blind, but the person used both in a context that personally I don't see as offensive but wanted other opinions. To me it is saying being a human we think one way but act the other, or vice versa.
Also if i may say this, I am not deaf or hearing impaired, so in no way am i comparing myself to those who are, but i can say just because i can hear doesn't mean I always listen
But i have worked with the hearing impaired and deaf and I can say the opposite is true,
Even tho I couldn't be heard they were listening, by that I mean they truly paid attention comprehended and responded with insights and point of views that i didnt think of.
Well anyway let me know what you all think.
