I Am Who I Am
And I’m Proud of it too
To those who haven’t met me,
It’s so nice to meet you.
I have Autism;
Something that is always with me
In my personality and body,
Something that doctors can agree.
My five senses are increased,
I hear, see, taste and smell things differently.
Even my mind is ‘off course’
Captured by everything around me instantly.
I can be energetic,
I can be easily excited.
Also, sometimes even the smallest things,
Would make me frightened.
I love my parents,
They tell me I’m a gem.
For they are proud just like me,
For who I am.
