Autism is too often misconceived
Considered a problem, misunderstood
That there is hope, is not always believed
With love, can we possibly find the good?
People see difference and don’t like it
I think in pictures, keep thoughts to myself
I’m unique, they think that I do not fit
I’m often ignored and left on the shelf
What if I told you autism is a gift?
Thinking in ways others simply cannot
Clearly it’s time for people’s minds to shift
Beautiful minds should not be left to rot
We’re inventors that move our world forward
Please stop saying that we are disordered
(I chose not to show a picture because I’m worried it will create more misconception about myself and others!)
