"Autism and We" - a poem

To be enlightened is to understand
To join with another, we 'hold' their hand
To trully respect, allow them to be free
To be who they are, not (to be) like you or me.

Let us be guided by their intrinsic selves
Let antiquated beliefs gather dust on the shelves
Let the colour of their soul be untainted
Let them shine in the colours nature has painted.

Show them your heart, and they'll own it forever
Show that you 'know', and they'll keep it together
Show to the world your fulfilled soul
Show to all others that unity is our goal.
