Sample of Daniel Durant’s ASL Poetry: “Alone”


Desolation. Emptiness. Darkness. Rain falls. Wind blows. Cold. And alone. So many people, and none who will see me. I. Am. Alone. My whole world, crumbling. The devastation rippling throughout my life. Barren. All I feel is pain, and deep sorrow. I cry parallel lines. My soul readies itself. Ready to leave this place. But wait! Just a moment! Who is there? Could it be love? What is this feeling? My soul feels alive! My heart beats anew. Every fiber of my being starts rippling with the power of love. My whole world is now full. The rain fall slows its tempo, until there is none. The sun shines on me. And I feel its warmth. I feel love. I’m. Not. Alone. Original ASL Poetry created and performed by Daniel N. Durant English Adaptation and Captions provided by Kimberly Jennery
