I wish I could
One day Sam walked to his room alone and shuts the door slowly and sat in front of a God’s photo and started to talk…
Dear God, Hi I am Sam. Do you like me? Can we be friends? Can you talk? I am sorry, you must be busy, if you understand me, please watch me. I have no one to tell this. Hope you will understand what I am doing. My teacher hit me hard, it’s paining. My parents hit me hard too, it’s paining, my dad didn’t like me. My dad hits my mom all day and mom cries. Dad pointed out me and say something I couldn’t understand. Poor little brother always lonely, not understanding what I talk, I don’t know how to talk to him. I want to teach him. He ignores me, I think he does not like me. I have no friends to play around my house, mom never left me outside, why am I on this planet? I did not wanted any of this, I want to be like them, I am trying to be like rest of them. Here, my tears, you created me like I can’t even cry aloud. It’s true, I don’t know how to cry like my mom or my brother does, I can sense them, but I can’t be loud like them but I can bring tears too and it’s emotional, is this Why I am always treated special? why you are not responding to me, can you do some magic and come out of this photo and talk like me so I can understand? Hope you know I can’t hear, I can’t talk, and that’s my fault? You did this me? mom always says that, I don’t believe her, but I do believe that she said you can help me talk and hear like all of them. No sign? You still a picture? or did you made some movement? Okay, you don’t understand what my fingers talk right?
After a brief silence, Sam kept back the photo of his god and went to bed and wiped the tears as nobody heard his cry, and all he prayed for was a simple wish, I wish I could – talk and hear just like others. Hope God heard him.
Thanks for reading ✨
P.S – If you don’t know about this part, just wanted to tell you all again, I know sign language, because I have a deaf and dumb elder brother.
