A Brave Sea holds the Foam
I was diagnosed with autism at age of two
When they found me walking on my tiptoe.
You looked down at me as if your world melt away;
Mummy, I never knew why you cried until this day!
“Your lives would never be the same!” Others said
When they saw me constantly banging my head!
I screamed and cried, till my throat went dry!
Daddy, I know you were lost, wondering why!
When I couldn’t communicate on my own;
My anguish pierced you both to the bone.
When my repetitive behavior lasted for hours;
I must say, your care and patience had magical powers.
Some are lights from His blazing throne one wish to embrace,
Send down to make this world a much better place.
I’m lucky, He chose you both to give me a home;
For I was held on hearts as the brave sea holds the foam.
The world went whispering, for years, to its own,
Autism curved a better me they’d ever known.
Dear Autism fellows, you are not alone,
It’s time to prove we could make it on our own!
Born to breath those undeserved scorn;
Instead, we mused like the moonlight shone.
My chest bursts now with intense pride,
As I picture my life, with Autism at my side.
