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

Mean Girls

This morning I woke up

As happy as could be

There was nothing I had to do

Only things I wanted to do

I passed the thought of what was said to me on

My last day of school

Some friends, well people I thought were my friends,

They said to me

We’re really not your friends you know

And we don’t really like you either

You’re to stranger for us

We’ll see you around

But we won’t be likely to say hi

Don’t waste your time thinking about us

Because we sure won’t be thinking about you

Unless we need a good laugh or two

Try not to fall flat on your keester

Because we’re such mean girls

We’d just have to react

And we can assure you

We won’t be their with our hand out to help you up

So you should start scouting for some new…

Daily Happenings from poetsareangels

The Good and The Bad

I wake up dreading the day

not knowing what will come my way?

Will I face anger?

Will I face hate

followed by an immediate apology

with words of love?

Will all my prize possessions

be smashed to the floor

with words of denial

while she vents her frustrations?

Will she do it because she knows

what they mean to me?

Will she laugh at me and make me cry

because she wants me to know what she

goes through every day?

My sweet angel, I do understand

We plan for good things

but end up with bad things

A bad nights sleep

can alter the day

One slip of the tongue

and she runs out the door,

don’t worry though because she won’t go far

Smooth calm and gentle words

makes for a productive day

When she does well

A reward goes a long way

Always remember your good day
