Unshattered: to ‘I Wish I Didn’t Have Aspergers’: #AutismPositivity2012

A teacher tells you that you are shattered;

That your sonnets disjointed appearance

Limp as though they were beaten and battered,

And pounded into disobedience.

Silence.  The sergeant commands your silence!

Tight-lipped grim you comply to such forces–

Which tear at your extraordinaire sense(s).

(Enhanced rushing of a thousand horses!)

Although, you have been kicked on tough courses,

Reacting and acting to rigid minds

Emploring you to hide your resources.

Owning none, they would wish away your kind.

No, or yes.  Your fine gifts are yours to use.

Enjoy!  The future is for you to choose!
