POEM: Don’t Take My Toys

POEM: Don’t Take My ToysThe anxiety has taken over
Your face is full of fear
I don’t know what started it today
I know you’re gone; not here

Your fear of losing your toys
It overwhelms you
The thought of them breaking
It consumes you

Toys are here to be played with
Toys are meant to be fun
But you’re not feeling this at all
You just want to be done

Know that it’s going to be okay
Nothing is going away
Your toys will always be yours
Forever and a day

Rachel Alexander is originally from the UK, but moved to the US in 2009. She is married with two children Max and Isla, and lives in Houston, Texas. In 2014, Max was diagnosed with Autism at the age of 2. Over the last 4 years, Rachel and her family has learned to live with and embrace everything that Autism brings. It is this journey that has inspired her to start writing poetry. She created a Facebook page called ‘Autism Through Poetry' with the hopes that her poems will help others know that they are not alone. She hopes to encourage acceptance and create a better understanding of life with autism; ultimately providing comfort to those who need it most.
