Brother Poem

Poem Of A Teenager's Struggle

I am 17 and have had a rough childhood. My younger brother amazes me because he doesn't let his autism affect him the way I thought it would. He is my world and more.

Oh, this is a touching poem. I'm a tutor for autistic children, and the expressions you used were very loving. The most you can do for him is keep on loving him.

Autism Within My Brother

Published: January 2015

Inseparable.
Partner in crime.
Together forever.
A lemon and lime

Normal as can be.
Love you always.
Special to me.
Comforting.

A rock star kid.
Good times and bad.
Astonishing changes.
You're trending a fad.

Autism.
Autistic.
Special needs if you please,
But retarded, that word never should you speak.

A heart of gold.
One amazing soul.
A special young man, so very bold.
Afraid.

Looking for friends.
The words just don't seem right.
This isn't very fair.
Seemingly can't take flight.

Autism affects his social reaction.
Inspiration.
He has trouble with getting anyone's attraction.
Bullies.

He will make you laugh.
He will treat you right.
Wanting normality.
He's funny and bright.

He is my little brother
He means the world to me.
You can call him autistic but
he will always be the sugar in my tea.
