Autism - A Poem by Tiffany
I am autistic
my mouth doesn't work right
and i cant talk like most people
that is frustrating
and makes me tired.
Treating the world to my thoughts requires support from a skilled facilitator
who helps me to create organized movement
my body is not always organized and that is tiring.
I am greatly diverse
In my thinking
And I am sad
That Donald trump is the president he is not free thinker like me
And that is tiring.
