Hello my lovely Bloggy friends,
I was reading an article today on Autism Support Network.
Here is the link;
I found this extremely interesting and while reading it was reminded of a poem I wrote a while back.
I’ll let the article speak for itself, just follow the link.
All people are unique and beautiful individuals.
We all have our own understanding and convictions on what we believe.
This article helped me and that is why I’m sharing it.
Here is my poem.
Shall I take the cure pill?
They’ve invented a new tablet, to take my quirks away
It will cure me of my ASD and help me fit today
I’ll be able to understand what it is that I can gain
By being part of what goes on, no-longer live this pain
They are giving out this pill tomorrow, I’d better get in line
It might be the answer to the prayers I’ve prayed so many times
I’ll be able to cope with noisy rooms and people will talk to me
I’ll be different from the way I’m made and then I’ll truly see
What it is to just be normal and not an obsessive freak
To be seen as just intelligent, and not an eccentric geek
To go into a party and cope with conversation
Be normal, accepted, understood, a manufactured creation
Now, I’ve been thinking hard on this and if I take that pill
I’m telling God that He is wrong and I refuse His will
I’m telling Him that He has made a mistake in what He’s done
That His Handiwork is not good enough, the battle isn’t won
I know God doesn’t make mistakes, I’m fearfully and wonderfully made
He sent His Son to die for me, He has already been betrayed
A Brother/friend He loved so much, but He knew it was meant to be
Just like my quirks and fears and pain are all to set me free
Maybe I will not see it here, but in this world I don’t belong
I do not fit, I might be odd, but to God there’s nothing wrong
With how I’m wired or who I am, I’m unique and will give Him glory
Each day is hard but together with God, I’ll keep looking at Jesus’ story
I am perfectly formed, created as His, protected by Angels above
One day I’ll go home and look in His eyes, surrounded in His perfect Love.
