Sorry but I haven’t been on here for a while. Been feeling under the weather and out of sorts. Not been feeling very creative so not much writing done. However I have come up with this one. It’s how I view growing up with Asperger’s and how it can feel sometimes.
As children growing up we are all the same
All developing through play, school, family and friends
Sight, hearing, taste, touch, smell
All exciting and new to a child
Socialising and communicating with others
As they explore a whole new world
Excitement uncontained and unabated
And then childhood stops
For some at least
But for others it does not
Their bodies grow old and weary
Yet their minds are still those of children
Thinking like a child
Feeling like a child
Living in an adult body
In an unfamiliar world
That doesn’t understand
Struggling to cope with everyday tasks
Day after day after day
Welcome to the world of autism
Children living in adult bodies
Struggling to live in an adult world
A world they don’t understand
Struggling with life everyday
But always with a smile on their face
