I'm NOT naughty, I'm autistic

Asking me to look you in the eye when you talk
Is like asking the child in the wheelchair to walk
You wouldn't do it so don't tell me
To brush my hair or go play PE
You get mad when I don't turn in my homework on time
But time at home isn't yours it's mine
I pay attention in class
I pass every exam
So what persay am I doing wrong?

Why do I get shouted at for staring at walls
In lessons if I'm already ahead of them all
I don't sleep at night and I play with the lights
There are codes on my desk and ladders in my tights
I really don't care but you seem to
You seem to have issues with everything I do
Yesterday was yellow and today is blue
So forgive me today if I can't talk to you

Difficult is as difficult does
Ask me to perform on stage and I could
But ask me to walk down a crowded street
And you'll find I'm way out of my league
Sometimes I'm late because I miss the bus
I did it on purpose the first was too full
I might throw a hissy fit in the middle of town
Because they've taken a poster down
It bothers me they're allowed to change my world
Without actually having to tell me first

You say that I'm rude when I don't laugh at jokes
But to me they're just not funny you know
Well I guess you don't because you still pick on me
For a huge imperfection nobody can see
Touch my shoulder, and yes I'll scream
You say I'm naughty I say you're naive

This whole situation makes me sick
I'm NOT naughty, I'm autistic
I'm NOT naughty, I'm autistic

It sucks that anyone with an imperfection they have no control over get picked on and abused. I have a brother who is mentally and physically handicap and I hate it when people make fun of him or call him a retard. They don't know how much he wishes he weren't different or how he cries because he feels he is a burden to my family and I. He is one of the strongest people I know and I love him completely. People need to grow up and realize that what they say can hurt people and they shouldn't say it. They all need to keep their mouths shut! They don't know anything if they are making fun of someone who can't walk or doesn't think or act the way they think a person should! Making fun of an autistic or disabled person is like making fun of a black kid because he's black. People frown upon making fun of black people cause they're black, so why not frown upon people making fun of an autistic person or a disabled person because they're autistic or disabled? I don't understand how some people can be so stupid and simple-minded! I love your poem, it's really beautiful and I am so sorry that you have to deal with those ignorant people. You are stronger and better than they will ever be and never forget that!

Hey there. I have mild Aspergers Syndrome and a Grandmother who chose to be ignorant to that fact. When will the ignorant understand?
Hang in there :D
