I promise that my sharing of this is not borne out of a self-serving sentiment. I’m very deeply touched by the neurosiblinghood I feel with this lovely soul, but the poem itself is too beautiful not to share! 🙂
Thank you, Cocoons, for writing this 🙂 ❤
To my friend Laina over at The Silent Wave. 😉 Thanks for the inspiration.
What we have may not
Arrive in the glitzy gold wrapping the
Our usefulness may not always be
Obvious at the outset.
But, you better believe it’s
Better than you can imagine.
For, the earth is fairly scattered with
And all such shiny, flashy things.
But, the deep and delightful colors
We bloom in,
The rareified and radiant beauty
We roll in
Is something amazing to behold.
Autism is like a red cardinal
Flapping through a dense tangle of trees-
Stark against gray sky.
Different to see, yes,
But a God-created lack of sameness
Very much appreciated by some of us.
All we await on
Is for the rest of the world to recognize
How sorely we are needed…
