Autistic Child

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.

Really an insightful rendition written with clarity of thought and mind. Well conceived and elegantly brought forth. Thanks for sharing Katrina.
why does banging our autistic heads make things better? i wish i could stop! but it is more fun than anything. and more scary than anything too. i wish i was not me. but i don't wont to loose it? make any sense?
