My 100th post :) A Poem for Autism Awareness Day

Today is Autism Awareness day, and I thought I would write something for it. Autism is not a problem, it is who I am. I notice I am different sometimes, then other times I think everyone else is just crazy. I think it changes how I look at the world, perhaps how the world looks at me… but deep down I think it just defines me.

Staring out the window
Confused and lost in dreams
Trying to understand
How did I come to be

This world just is so confusing
Always dark and Grey
Why don’t they paint things pretty?
How come they do not play?

I don’t think I belong
Things seem so out of place
Those people like loud music
And those people pierce their face

Why can’t I understand
This world that is so strange
Everything out of order
So many things out of place

So staring out the window
I decided to stay in dreams
Where things are so simple
And make sense to me.
