NDIS

NDIS say

value for money

like we are property

like a price can be put on a life

like we don’t matter

People are valuable

wether they can work or not

life has value

no matter what

we all contribute

with our life

disabled are important

disabled are valuable

just as we are

no price can be enough

for my words

no price can be enough

for peoples lives

NDIS said choice and control

for me to choose

where I live

how I live

to be included in the community

I have not seen choice of my life

I have not seen control of my life

NDIS tried to put me in a home

This is not choice

this is not control

I have the right

to live

to exist

to be me in my way

to have a life a life that I want

NDIS has only been pain for me

fear

stress

NDIS is not working for me

it needs to change

for me

for everyone

lives are valuable as they are

always

Don’t ask how I am

if ask me how I am you going get same answer. I bad. I going be bad long time. I am alone and scare. I no care long time. My love in hospital and not know when see again. I not able get out bed without hurt me. I not able feed me. I all day in bed. I scare not able get pet food. I not able see doctor. I not able call anyone. I not be okay long time. I not communicate people I don’t know. Get worse everyday. I need communication device not getting funded. I need support worker not getting sent. I need doctor. I need help not happening. I am bad. I am isolated. I can’t take care myself and no one understand. I scare going slowly die alone and never see my love again. no I can’t go hospital. No don’t call police. That make worse and very triggering.
