Read Write Poem #81...prompt by flikr oncle jim












BEING DIFFERENT







Some called me autistic some retarded


always feeling discarded


empty and void


treated like a schizoid


always hoping you would be seeing


me as a human being


and not something wild


always treating me as a child


knowing I would never be mainstream


but always having a dream


I just kept hopping mile after mile


always with my smile


wanting to be free


and keeping my dignity


never caring to win or lose


just wanting to be able to choose


tired or being brutalized


and institutionalized


I might be different


even brilliant


sitting under my tattered umbrella


only me and my mantra
