The poetic musing of our deaf Romeo

Imran Mahmood is a very friendly young teenager with the typical language delays associated with bilateral severe to profound hearing loss. Imran often underestimates his own ability with regards to his understanding of the English language. Last weekend, after completing his homework, Imran was inspired to write the poem below.  I feel this writing encapsulates a beauty that generates a huge heart warming smile. Well done Imran!!!


Chug Chug Choo Choo,
As a train arrive on a platform 19
As sitting on the bench mysterious girl appear by my side
Her hair is like a wind was upon me
Smell of dove, her cheek was like a strawberry clear

Her pretty looks surround you like flower bloom
Her voice was all passible lyrical way to come and approach you
Her eye was full of ocean a sun set arrive,
can be brown beauty just like mine

Her face is mirror shine like looking glass
Her smell was of Elizabeth Taylor perfume last

I ask mysterious girl ‘are you thirsty?’
She said ‘’yeah’’
I ask her ‘’what your name?’’
I go fetch some tea for her but the mysterious girl disappear.
