The Voice of Autism:

My Topsy Turvy Life

I wish for two days in a row that didn’t always start at one extreme and end at another

I’m happy

I’m sad

I’m mad

I’m nice

It’s not my fault

Some people just can’t be nice to me

Don’t they understand that I have feelings just like they do?

When they say something mean to me

It seems to hurt more

Like they just really want to see me cry

I don’t like crying

I don’t think anyone does

It makes me think of all the other bad times I’ve had

I want to think about all the good times

Don’t get me wrong

I have lots of happy thoughts

About

The time I spend with my family

When we go places

When we sit and watch funny things on TV

When I get to help bake

Or help in the garden

I love when we travel

My life is so topsy-turvy

Sometimes good

Sometimes bad

I wish I could read everyone’s minds

So I could really understand why they need to pick on me

I wish I could make people see that it’s not right to hurt anyone

I wish I could make people live like I do

And Maybe

They would never be mean to me or anyone else again

I wonder if their lives are topsy-turvy

And if that is why

They are so mean to me

I wish they knew that it would just be better to be my friend

I know then

My life wouldn’t be so topsy-turvy

The Voice of Autism Through a Mothers Eyes:

Finally, A place to feel I belong

My Poem of the Day

(07/19/14)

The Start of Summer School

In a new place

With all different types of people

But more like me

Some could walk

Some had wheelchairs

Some had trouble speaking

Some had trouble paying attention

Some just wanted to leave

But we all found that there was

No more

being teased

No more

being poked

No more

being dared to do bad things

And no more

having our lunches stolen

It was scary seeing classmates that were different from me

But I know that

Everyone learns differently and has

different abilities

different strengths

different weaknesses

But in the end we all learn the same way

We have the same fears

We all want to be liked

And we’re all here to learn

Now my eyes are wide open

And

I find interest in more things

And

Have made new friends

No one makes me feel bad about who I am

No one makes me cry every day

I smile when I walk in the room

And

I smile when I leave the room

I’m the happiest that I can be

Thanks for setting me free

And

For letting me just be me

The Voice of Autism:

Dazed and Confused

I quickly leave one class to head to another

Outside and in between buildings

I realize

I don’t really know where I’m going

Aides try to help me

But I lash out in frustration

No hands, No feet, Just Words

Words that hurt once heard

Words that cut my helper down

Words that I never mean

Words I wish I never said

Once calmed I regret everything that was said

I apologize but I feel like it meant nothing

Oh how I wish my brain worked the same as all the others

So I wouldn’t have to hear their painful words

Every time I say the wrong thing

Or when I say nothing at all

Oh What I would give to see them in my place

I’m just so “dazed and confused”

I sure wish I just knew what to do

Oh, here comes mom

She’s here to save my day, yet again

I chalk it all up to just another day in my world
