Ode to an autistic girl by Auti Woman Different Box (BLW Contributor)

I write to you autistic girl
Telling you what you need to know.
I spent many years,
Fighting back the tears
Lost in this world alone.

I am autistic loud and proud
But that wasn’t always the case.
I use to believe
That I was not real
A robot made in space.

When I was young I had no fun
With all of my thoughts trapped inside.
My knees would go weak,
Beginning to speak
My mouth did not abide.

At the start of my teenage years
I struggled to fit in somewhere.
No one to call,
Left feeling so small
Wishing someone would care.

I left school, not sure what to do
Entering the big world around.
But I was older
And I was bolder
With both feet on the ground.

Now I’ve found a job that I love
And great friends that like who I am.
They know I’m odd,
A bit of a sod
And they don’t give a damn.

So please believe autistic girl
That things will get better in time.
I’m happy and sad
With a touch of mad
But I am well and fine.

And so my great autistic girl
I leave you with this parting thought.
Just be who you are
And you’ll get real far.
Life is just way too short.
