“When You Grow Up Deaf” is a powerful poem published at the website, DRMSTREAM. Here are a couple of excerpts:
When you grow up deaf there are so many things you don’t know.
The sound of rain on the roof.
**********When you grow up deaf you worry that you’ll never really know the world, that every moment your back is turned some thing irre place able will pass you by. When you close your eyes, silence.
