I enjoyed your poem. Your poem should be posted in schools, given to parents, read aloud to all teachers! You did a nice job wrapping the meaning of autism up in your writing.

Noises are amplified, peoples comments are interpreted differently. Lights and television scenes have a negative effect. Fitting in with others is just impossible. I hear and understand you. You are special and I for one, envy you. You are what humans should be like. Autism should be seen as more normal than "normal" people today. May you learn to recognize that you and others like you, are very special. You dislike what our society finds acceptable and that my friend, is a gift.
