Autism's Name

Autism has a smile, a beautiful face
Disconnected from this world, this place
Thought process differs from most
Unable to chase away Autism's ghost

Autism has a smile, a beautiful face
An Angel presented by Heaven's grace
Fighting to control an impulsive mind
Reminding Autism to always be kind

Autism has a smile, a beautiful face
Discovering the world at his own pace
Four years young in this Autism game
A challenge being Autism's name


For my man in the middle; Kaleb
'May you always see beyond the borders'
Love, hugs and kisses...
Always and Forever...

    So sensitively you deal with this devastating condition that affects more people than we realize. Makes me wonder how it has touched you. Really special Shannon!

    P.S. - ooops. By no means am I suggesting for you to change this poem! I mean, writing a new version in a form like Villanelle that uses repetition and rhyme.

    Heya Shannon. Great thoughts here, shedding light on....well, simply shedding light; giving a postive spin on a topic that can be difficult for people to talk about. Ok, I am not saying to change this poem at all. I really dig the repetitive lines, so you might want to try your hand at a different version of this poem using Villanelle form? Nice dedication poem, as well.
