Poetry Corner: Special Kid

There was this very special kid, Poetry Corner: Special Kid https://www.autismparentingmagazine.com/poetry-corner-special-kid/

who had to find his way.

He worked so hard,

he did this every day.

He smiled and he laughed,

and sometimes he would talk

about the things that he wanted,

and what he asked for with his words he got.

You see he was learning

on an unbalanced scale

where autism sometimes got in his way.

And since he learned about life when he tried things,

he never could fail.

In times when he would struggle

he would just try again,

and from this he learned,

that hard work and perseverance in the face of adversity

would be his friend.
