Living disabled

Tue, 07/07/2015 - 22:48 -- Maestra

I used to live on Kauai, my life was paradise

I was beginning to think I was beginning to arise

When I moved to Maui, and everything crashed

My life there, which was short, was absolute terror

I didn't know why anything happened, no one understood, not even I did

So all I did for the next year was take all my frustration and put it under a lid

When I moved again, I learned what was wrong

Autism plagued my mind, I was mentally disabled and there was nothing I could do

As my younger self continued on, the lid from years ago burst and I felt that I did not belong

But then I drew a person, and then a another, and then a story

I made adventures for my characters, nothing too gory

Today I still continue my stories, I may lack friends, but in my head, life is just a theme song
