The Voice of Autism: Why

Why

Why can’t they hear me?

Why can’t they understand…

Why don’t they know that I’m crying because I’m in pain

Why doesn’t anyone understand what it feels like to be in my skin

Why doesn’t anyone understand what it feels like to have my brain

How can they know that I’m different, but not understand

Why…

I’m tired of crying

I’m tired of them not knowing

I’m tired of them not understanding…

Why I hold my head down

Why I bite my nails

Why I don’t like screaming and loud noises

Why I’m so awkward

Why I can’t draw the way I’m supposed to

Why I feel left out

Why I don’t join in

Why I don’t dance

Why I like to run away

One day I hope that I won’t have to ask why,

That I will feel a part of things,

And that people will understand me

That I will feel comfortable in my skin

And I hope that by then, you will be my friend
