Living in denial
Hating my existence
Unable to accept
The truth and fact
Deep inside me
Autism is the
Label given to me
Coming from my family members
Many time I deny it
Only to surrender and learn to
Embrace autism in my life
Knowing the angst of my pain
But I choose to smile to others
Showing the brighter side of my true self
Wishing to cheers the broken-hearted
Yet others tend to
Break my heart
Of my kindness
Only to land myself
Feeling the awful pangs of hurt
From all the
When my world is closing
You come into my life with your own agenda
Soothing words to uplift me
Then you hurt me four times
Pushing me forward three step backs
Then pull me backward four step backs
Why are you playing with my innocence?!
Why are you entering into my world?
Giving me FALSE hopes
Only to DASH it!
Enough of your mental game!
My Lord sees it and warns me of your cunningness
To PREVENT me from further hurt!
This IS the FENCE of my BOUNDARIES!

These are the summary of my experiences birthed in poetry. I thank my Lord and Saviour for the right words to SHOUT it out. Wish you all have good days and thank you.
Oh man is this ever powerful and so poignant! As a special educator working with students who have profound mental challenges my heart always goes out to students who deal with disabilities such as Autism. People like Temple Grandin have helped me understand at least a little bit the challenges that folks with autism face every day but just a little bit. Your poem helps me understand a little more, thank you. i want to be more compassionate each day to people I work with, interact with and live with.
Thank you, Georgia. And I begin to understand myself.
Thanks, Georgia. Even I begin to understand myself.

the blessing of autism is most probably they don’t feel verbal abuses, only physical abuses hurt them… atleast I do hope so!
Hope so. I realize verbal abuses are amplified. I experience it and feel it.
I have seen some autistic persons (Spent a few months with them), and have seen them quite cruelly handled by their ayahs but they never expressed anything about verbal cruelty, they reacted on physical ones but very mildly.
Who is ayahs?
Ayah are the women who sort of work like nannies but without that much responsibility and lot lesser pay.
are you autistic?
