Thanks for sharing. Beautiful piece. My 7 year old is on the spectrum and it sums up how I feel about others reactions. We should be more respectful of other peoples feelings instead of trying to mold them into what we think they should be.
"On the spectrum" - specific phrase. This is a poem in which I disclose after 60 years that I grew up on the autism spectrum. While I rarely show signs of it now (or in the past 50 years) it still reverberates within my innermost being.
