Poem -

Autistic

I see colours when I hear noise. I don't know the difference between girls and boys.
I hate light and can't tie a lace I can see your eyes but you have no face.
I can't use a toilet but know what it's for I love the splash of wee on the floor.
I hate red but love the colour blue I love Thomas the tank but hate Winnie the Pooh.
My room is sparce I hate to much stuff a picture on the wall is more than enough.
I hear what you say but cannot reply I avoid eye contact and stare at the sky.
I ain't aloof or ignoring you my senses are mixed and my mind is to.
My brains wired wrong it's not like yours have you guessed yet...I'm autistic of course

Hi Sparrowsong 
I appreciate your comments, I've worked past 15 years with children and young people with autism from high functioning to the lower end of the spectrum and it's been truly amazing

Yeah, Keith. I u-h-h-h-h...I kind'a gathered that much from your title.
But hey, it's not the end of the world, right?
I'm mildly dyslexic. So,what do I choose to do as a hobby in my spare time?
Why, read and write, of course, what else, heh-heh.
Go figure...
