Poem About Autism

I put the puzzle pieces together

one by one

but I can never come up with a whole picture.

To me, they fit.

Others call me "retard".

I'm Cinderella with the wrong shoes.

My brain feels like a sponge all the time.

I'm the crust of the pizza

that everyone throws away.

Words and numbers look like worms and noodles.

But I don't mind

because when I'm happy, the sun laughs with me.

When I'm sad, the clouds cry with me.

You see, I'm never alone.

So the puzzle might look wrong to you

but to me, it's perfect.
