Autism's Innocence

Once I sat, engaged and adorning All my soul, within me humbling My beauty, I could not awaken What could there be, more purely forsaken Eagerly I looked for the greatness Eagerly I looked for perfection Instead I uncover the sublimity There I see the optimity Your pure soul shining forth Suddenly I know your worth In the flaws, thru the pain Yet not once do you complain Always forward, ever striving Nothing will stop you from thriving Much I marveled at your pure soul As the world took it's toll Your smile would slip and disappear You would become more austere As the world around you changes Like a thunderstorm, it rages Yet your Innocence remains As if it is all prearranged

Beautiful poem! This poem reminds me of how some kids with autism have angelic features. They may be difficult to deal with sometimes but they are a joy to work with once they warm up to you.
