“ Marching Strong”
I know, I have always
Normalcy was never an option.
At the age of 26, I earned my heroes cape.
When I opened my heart to the possibilities , I was able to save the day.
I have Autism, a unique gift.
Sometimes it may look different to others, but if so I don’t want to be the same.
I want to play by my own rules, and create my own games.
I have released and let go of the shame of what it means to be different.
Those of us with Autism we are heroes, our hearts shine bright to the call to love one another.
As we stand together we are brave and strong.
April is national Autism month so, we will keep marching strong.
