Autism

Used to line up my toys,
cant stand all the noise.
More frequent for boys,
born without a choice.

Wild imagination,
A world of my own.
Not even science understands me,
but in there I had a throne.

So much potential,
A mind you can grind.
More then meets the eye,
so much to find.

Memorising details,
fail to see it as a whole.
Support my mindset,
Give me a goal.

Different on levels,
yet to you all the same.
Stuffed all together
in society's frame.

Used to line up my toys,
Cant stand all the noise.
More frequent for boys,
born without a choice.

My so called superpower,
my diagnosed decease.
Talk like you do with others,
don't sympathyze me please.

Lonely in this disorder,
lonely with my mind.
Boy was I happy
When others I did find.

Designed by god his image
With this privelege or flaw,
call him what you want.
But he's not perfect at all.

Different reality,
different views I hold.
Yet I would not trade them
for all the money in the world.

Used to line up my toys,
Cant stand all the noise.
More frequent for boys,
to cherish it is my choice.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

From here it's pretty obvious that I have autism.
I was born with it, and I will die with it.
Yet, my autism makes me the person I am today.
And today there is nothing wrong with me. Not with me, and not with you.

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
