1. “Different, Not Less”
Eyes that see the world anew
A brain that thinks in ways askew
Expressions that others misconstrue
Autism is beautiful, it’s true
2. “A Different Language”
Words may fail, but sounds abound
An unspoken language, not easily found
A world of sensations, all around
Autism speaks, without a sound
3. “Uniquely Captivating”
A mind that takes unexpected twists and turns
A heart that beats with passion that burns
A soul that shines with brilliance that yearns
Autism, uniquely captivating in all it discerns
4. “Understanding Autism”
Listen with compassion, hear what’s said
Accept the differences, embrace instead
Be a support, a helping hand to shed
Understanding autism, in love be led.
Different Not Less
We see the world through different eyes,
Our minds work in their unique guise,
Our thoughts may seem strange and unclear,
But we’re just wired a bit queer.
Our movements may be twitchy and odd,
We may talk too loud or nod,
But we’re not trying to cause offense,
We’re just wired with a different sense.
The world can be overwhelming and loud,
But we’ll find our place, we’ll be proud,
Because being different is not a curse,
It’s what makes us special, diverse.
We may struggle in some ways,
But we have gifts to share every day,
So don’t judge us by what you see,
Get to know us, just let us be.
My mind is like a puzzle box,
Full of twists and turns and shocks,
Each piece unique and intricate,
I see the world in patterns and details,
My mind working like a thousand snails,
Processing, analyzing, understanding,
Interpreting every single thing.
My thoughts may seem like a jumble,
But to me, they’re perfectly humble,
Each one important in its own way,
A part of the tapestry of my day.
So don’t dismiss me or misunderstand,
My brain just works a bit grand,
And though our differences can be vast,
We all have a place that will last.
Finding My Voice
Sometimes it’s hard to make myself heard,
To express what’s inside, to use my word,
The world can be overwhelming and bright,
Too much noise, too much light.
But I’m learning to find my voice,
To speak up, to make a choice,
To share my thoughts, to express my will,
To show the world what I can fulfill.
It’s a process, a journey, a quest,
To find what makes me feel best,
But I know that I have a place,
A role in this life that I can embrace.
So don’t give up on me or doubt,
I’m stronger than you may think about,
Our hearts and minds may work in another way,
But we all have something important to say.
The Spectrum of Life
In this world so vast and wide,
We all embark on a different ride.
Some can speak, some cannot,
Some can laugh, some cannot.
We are all part of a spectrum,
Our differences are not too enigmatic.
We all have quirks and eccentricities,
That make us unique and special entities.
Those with autism see the world in a different way,
Their sensory perception has an intensity that will sway,
Their minds work fast, but not always in sync with others,
Their social skills need attention, guidance and caring mothers.
Their cognitive processes are complex,
Their attention to detail awesomely perplexed.
Their interests can be varied and deep,
Their ability to concentrate, astoundingly steep.
Communication can be challenging,
Expressions of love, gestures and understanding
Need to be taught and provided,
To help those with autism feel valued and delighted.
The spectrum of life is wide,
With people of all abilities side by side.
We must embrace and celebrate diversity,
And give everyone a chance to find their vocation, purpose and victory.
For those with autism, let us provide love and acceptance,
Not pity or rejection, but kindness and patience.
Let us give them opportunities to grow and shine,
For they are just as capable and bright, one of a kind.
