Dedicated to Autism and Family

No one knows how he feels,
unable to speak,
he can only rely
on his eyes
to share what lies

Hot topic on the news and
in hospitals,
Mommie wonders,"why him",
Daddy says, "I can't win"
and the story begins.
Controversy and disbelief,
dreams deferred and no relief.
Research incomplete.

The world shatters and
no one exists beyond right now.
Stomping and frustration
maximized silence to loud.
No words yet creativity at its best,
spiritual connection observed 
while attempting to rest.
An angel, a catalyst for change,
limited but potential so far out of range,
tears crawl.

Donations, sacrifices and education,
prayer and communication,
with those who have overcome the devastation.

Autism, is not a fatal condition.
Is is an opportunity to have faith 
in God's position.
Only special people can change the world.

    My autistic brother speaks, a lot ;) for this we are blessed though. He also has a form of Tourettes Syndrome; it is a complicated combination. Thank you for this Doreen.

    Loving this write, Doreen! I had worked with autistic childen, they're loveable and super intelligent! "creativity at its best"; "frustrated" when they aren't being challenged, or misunderstood. Unable to communicate takes them to a world of their own. I'm sure if we could enter there, we'd be overwhelmed by its pureness and intensity. Thanks so much for sharing! Mikki
