Nicely Autistic

I WROTE THIS POEM ABOUT MY NEW ABILITY TO MAKE CHOICES. I AM BEING ABLE TO DECIDE MY OWN LIFE. HAPPY I CAN TALK. 

NICELY AUTISTIC

HAPPINESS IS DECIDING I AM FREE
HAPPINESS IS MAKING SCHOOL SO NICE
HAPPINESS IS MAKING CHOICES ABOUT LEARNING
HAPPINESS IS BEING IN CONTROL

FEAR IS NOT BEING HEARD
FEAR IS HATEFUL PEOPLE
FEAR IS MAD VOICES
FEAR IS BEING TRAPPED

ROASTING SOARING MAKING CHOICES AND TELLING WHAT I THINK
HANDY AGAIN AM TEACHING MOM SHE IS HEARING ME
INCREDIBLE GOOD HAS TO BE SEEN IN ALL
PEOPLE NEED TO NICELY DECIDE AND CHOOSE

TALKING IS ABILITY TO CHOOSE
TALKING IS BEING UNDERSTOOD
TALKING IS HAPPINESS
TALKING IS AMAZING

INSIDE THE MIND MAGIC EXCITEMENT HAPPENS
NOT SAID BUT ALWAYS THOUGHT
OTHERWISE ECCENTRIC NORMAL IN THINKING
NOT HEARD NOT UNDERSTOOD MEANINGFULLY

SEEING IS LIKE CLOUDY DAY
HEARING IS LIKE GONGS IN EARS
TOUCHING IS LIKE MIGHTY SOFT NUMBNESS
I LEARN I'M DIFFERENT CAN BE SAME 

ACKNOWLEDGED INTELLIGENCE
KNOWN I AM SMART
ACCEPTED BRILLIANCE
WONDERING PERSONALITY HAS COME OUT

SCIENTIFIC AND POETIC
ALRIGHT BEING ME

I'M TOTALLY BEING A SCIENTIST IN THE SNOW

  1. Beautiful poem! Reminds me of this poem written by my son many years ago when he was 8.

    Going Crazy for Communication

    by
    David Teplitz


    I once was trapped inside my head
    and it was stormy with dread.
    Thoughts stuck in my brain
    oh what pain pain pain.
    Others did talk talk talk.
    i was stuck.
    Then I was sad.

    David Unusually learned to type type type type type type.
    FREE was I!
    Then I was me, free.

    Communication is going extremely well.
    Crazy really for being free.
