I Am Special

I Am Special

written by: Jaden Price

 

I am Autistic and Special
I wonder if there could be peace between all who are treated differently
I hear “try harder,” and “you can do better every day”
I see confusion and mistreatment of people like me
I want to be understood
I am Autistic and Special
I pretend that I am a genius that can solve any issue big or small
I feel that I will always be looked at like I’m an alien from another planet
I touch a possibility that can never come true
I worry that I may never have a friend that can help me with my troubles
I cry for the pain of people who are different and therefore are treated differently
I am Autistic and Special
I understand that life is rough
I say that people who are different should not be treated as such
I dream of a world where people who are different in how they look, act, or speak, can be treated the same as everybody else
I try to not worry about my future
I hope that someday we’ll be understood for who we are
I am Autistic and Special
