Poem Describing What Autism Feels Like

My son is on the autism spectrum. He was very speech-delayed as a toddler. He struggled with comprehension of questions being asked to him and he still struggles with slow processing and putting into correct wording what he wants to say. I wrote this poem with him in mind, along with so many others around the world--whether they feel trapped inside due to ASD, a comma, or some other circumstances that prevent them from being able to communicate their thoughts and feelings.

More than this trapped soul is able to show.

Please don't lose patience or give up on me.
I fight every day to be the best I can be.
