Poem #9: "To the Autistic Child"

To the Autistic Child

to the autistic child
when you look back, did you have fun?
or was your heart burning hotter
than the rays of the sun?

to the autistic child
was your world disconnected?
was there a light inside
that was not resurrected?

to the autistic child
were you sad? were you abused?
did there seem to be an end
to all the times where you were used?

to the autistic child
do you remember me?
the shades of light carved by my face?
you're not blind, but... can you see?

to the autistic child
did you make it through the dark?
did you still find light
when the battle made its mark?

to the autistic child
how small is your cocoon?
is your soul evolving?
will you break free pretty soon?
