One day a person is given a gift.
Oh, it’s a Mac. It’s not what I wanted
There’s something wrong with it!
Theu will try to change this gift.
They will view it as a burden
When it doesn’t change they will
give it away.
We say thank you for the gift!
we will not try to change it
we will earn it’s unique language
we will listen to it’s beautiful song
We will rejoice in it’s strengthes
we will help it reach it’s potential
we won’t see something wrong with it.
One day you come into our lives
you are not like us.
we will not try to change you
we will learn your unique language
we will listen to your beautiful song
we will celebrate your strengths
we will love you as you are
we will not see you as broken
a new friend just what we wanted
your not broken we won’t try to fix you.
By “we” I mean the Autistic community.
