Everybody is unique in their own way.
Please don’t judge me.
I may not talk,
but I know what’s going on.
I may sit in the corner and rock all night long.
But that’s no reason to judge me.
I may act out in a public place.
But in fact I’m a good kid.
I’m smart as a whip
excelling in math and reading.
Lacking is my communication.
I may even invade your space.
When I get mad, I lose it.
The emotions I’m feeling have me over whelmed and confused.
I hit other kids, but it’s not deliberate.
They make me mad and I flip.
To look you in the eye is almost impossible.
So please don’t think I am cold.
The hand I was dealt wasn’t pretty.
I’m just a kid living with a disability.
So, please don’t judge me
because I am autistic.
I have had enough of it!
