See the World in My Eyes
by V.S., Literacy Learner
See the world in my eyes. I can’t read and write well. There are a lot of things you can’t do because you are scared you will get lost. You can’t read street signs. Going out of town is so scary. To not get lost, you hope someone will drive you around so you can see the town.
Your family knows you, but your friends don’t know you can’t read well. And you don’t want to make new friends because they might ask you to read. You fake it, saying – no glasses.
Although it may be scary, let someone help you if you need it. Tell someone your story. The world looks very good to you. You don’t have to daydream all the time. Tell someone so they can help you.
