Autism, some ask if I wish it were another way!

Autism, some ask if I wish it were another way,

when this happens I sigh and wonder what to say.

Yes, yes I do wish that life were another way.

 

I wish society would open their eye’s,

and stop making my little girl cry,

just pause, and see life through her eye’s.

 

I wish that her needs really didn’t matter,

I wish for less stupid idol chatter

and more dedication to the real things that matter.

 

I wish you could see how happy she is without a coat

understand she isn’t being stubborn when she refuses, ‘nope!’

the heat, the feel, the sound, the weight all this from a coat.

 

I wish you didn’t see her size and think oh my,

5ft 6 and only 8, she almost touches the sky,

Treat her according to height, and I think oh fucking my!

 

I wish there was no need to say these things,

I wish you could hear her as she sings

and watch her as she assembles things.

 

I wish you could see a child that loves

rather than the child that can’t get enough

who constantly needs to know that she is safe and loved.

 

I wish you wouldn’t say ‘but she looks so norm…’

our entire life isn’t one big storm!

Not to mention the fact that she actually is the norm.

 

Yes, I wish things were another way,

I wish everyone knew the right things to say,

and mostly I wish, that there was no other way.

Welcome to my blog! Here you will find different forms of creative writing, lots of swearing, erotic poetry, random thoughts, beautiful imagery, but most of all you will find a version of truth. My truth, this is the way that I see the world. However, all of my work is a form of creative writing, a combination of truth and fiction. I write to express my creativity, not my needs!
