im done with you people

I see the world in ways unseen by others
And thus I must be altered by martyric mothers.
I feel vibrations within which cause a rift.
My sensitivity overwhelms but is also a gift.
I speak in a language all my own.
I may be isolated but I am not alone.
Those who do not know me say I am strange.
I struggle each day when there comes a change.
I am forced to adopt their thought.
To alter my very being is what is sought.
I straddle this world and that of spirit.
Hoping that others will notice my voice and hear it.
I may have no words or only a few.
But I have much to say if they only knew.

They said to persevere. I began to perseverate. They discouraged me.

Be joyful they said. I flapped my hands with joyful feeling. Not like that they said.

They used alot of words whereas I had not many. They said I needed to speak like them and when I did they said it was the wrong words.

You need more friends they said as they forced me into the circle of bullies they called my 'friends'.

You need to be independent they said. So I tried. No, not like that. No, you cannot possibly do that.

Share your interests they said. So I did. We do not find that very interesting they said. Stop repeating yourself!

You are in your own world they said. And with that final statement it occurred to me- their world is not kind. Why is it better? Why must I be as them?

So whereas they refused to embrace or understand my world, I was forced to assimilate into theirs, each day giving up a part of my very being.

It was then I decided to be empowered, to embrace that which they refused to embrace, to be as I was, am, and will continue on to be. And I sought to share a piece of my world with those who dare might understand.

from BEING AUTISTIC: AN APPROACH TOWARDS UNDERSTANDING AND ACCEPTANCE

I do not say nonverbal but at times preverbal recognizing potentiality. But even then I prefer to say one who communicates differently for I recognize through glances, smiles, laughter, and the like that communication goes beyond mere words.
