It’s national Autism month and I wanted to reblog over the month some of the poetry I have written in response to my wonderful daughter. This specific poem was just one of those days, plans had been changed and her world had fallen apart, then the cat went and got in her way whilst she was walking down the stairs.
Why didn’t you tell me why didn’t you say?
Please don’t change my plans that’s really not okay.
Why was the cat there? It gave me such a scare
my body went and jumped and my heart got all fast
and I didn’t know how long that feeling was gonna last.
Please mum, stop it, stop it, stop it.
My feet are stuck mum I cannot move my legs
and it feels like an explosion going on inside my head.
Please mum, please, I can’t hear you through my tears
I need to block the sound that’s coming to my ears.
I do not understand i’m feeling all too much
and these things are moving fast they’re in such a rush.
Please mum, please, i’m pleading with my eyes
I cannot say the words for I cannot stop the cries.
let’s calm that beating heart,
mummies here let’s make a start.
