POEM: Navigating Autism

POEM: Navigating AutismAutism is hard to navigate
Each new day you don’t know what’s on your plate.

Some days are a breeze and some are not
Courage and inner strength, you need a lot.

Every autistic child is not alike
So each parent sees things in a different light.

Taking your kid out to do things around,
Requires planning to try to prevent the meltdown.

You follow the same patterns with your kid each day,
To help them feel structure and find their way.

God bless the parents and those autistic kids too,
Because they are all doing the best they can do.
