Autistic Child - Poem by Katrina Hodge

The best word for autism is frustration.
That for most is an Exclamation.
I am a child just like you,
I like to play with toys too.
Autism is not catchy as some people think,
I can not give it to you, even if we share a drink.
I cannot say all I wish to say,
My words are garbled even when I pray.
Not even my Mother can understand all,
The frustration makes me want to bang my head on a wall.
There is only one who understands,
My life and soul are in his hands.
Thank you God and Heaven above,
For my Mother's unconditional love.
