'Downs syndrome baby' by Sarah McGreevy

A little baby girl

Born in hospital

Sarah McGreevy

The doctors say:

Downs Syndrome baby.

Now I’m 34 years old

I’m angry

Don't call me Downs Syndrome

Call me Sarah

Not mental

Call me McGreevy

Not what doctors call me:

Downs Syndrome baby

I’m woman

Grown up

Doctor's names are not real

But Sarah is.
