To help carers or people who just don't understand asperges or other mental health conditions
It is hard living with asperges
Everything is black and white
Nothing is illogical 
Day is day and night is night

You can not read emotion 
You don't want to cause commotion 
All you want is love and understanding
Not grief and people just demanding 

It's hard to show compassion 
It's the mind too a fashion 
It's not lack of empathy
It's just that you cannot see

It's not a tantrum that's occurring 
It's the mind that is over tuning 
No point in saying get over it
It won't help just make us want to fit 

We know what is right from wrong
To a point of an OCD
It's pretty much autism in form
But not knowing what is the norm 

As a carer of someone with this fate
Show understanding and not hate 
It's hard to know what to say
It all depends on that day

No negative vibe or attitude
This will make them clam up
Plenty of love and gratitude
They be at the top of the cup

So stop and think and wonder why
What has made them start to cry
Thier is a reason in thier head
Try and resolve this before bed

Now this isn't in every case
Before you screw up your face
This is just sufferers that I do know
I just want to help and show

Your poem explains it well. My friend has 5 children,3 with Asperges, each a different form Home schooled all. Eldest two, 19,18, now in college and top of science class. Both won an award. So great potential.

Hello Gordon, that condition must be hard to live with,I feel badly for people that suffer with it. People should be understanding with a person like that. Just to accept them for the way they are. That is what I do with people with diferent handicaps. Have a nice day my friend.
