Disability, Invisibility

He sat, patiently,
Whilst conversations happened over him.
He sat, patiently,
Whilst decisions were made on his behalf.
He sat, patiently,
Whilst questions were asked about him, not to him.
He sat, patiently,

He sat, patiently,
His once-loud voice diminishing with unheard words.
He sat, patiently,
Losing the will to sit, to live, to wait.
He sat, patiently,
For what other choice did he have…
