We are excited to bring you a poem written by Lauren, a participant in our upcoming Siblings and Autism film (we are proud of you too Lauren!):
My smile says I’m happy, but my brain says I’m sad
Inside I want to be calm, but my face says I’m mad
I’m no perfect human as nobody will be
But I’m still perfect at being me
At first glance it seems I’m an open book
But you’ll find I have secrets where no one can look
When I write my thoughts they’re for all to see
But the only one who understands them is me
I whisper when I’m quiet
I yell when I am loud
Of all the things I am, I am me and I’m proud.
