I'm An AspieBy: Brian R. King

Allow me to introduce me to you
I'm someone quite unique.
To tell everything would take an hour or two
So I'll give you a little peek.
For me the light is far too bright
Some smells are far too strong.
Some touches are far too light
Still I manage to get along.
My interests are but one or two
And that’s enough for me.
I have some friends but very few
Just the way I like it to be.
I see life in a special way
Though I’m often misunderstood.
I know that every single day
I’m doing the world some good.
I may talk a little different than you
Still I have a lot to say.
I may not like the things you do.
I like to do things my own way.
I don't fear change as some believe
I prefer that change come from me.
When prior notice is not received
It can be frightening you see.
Though I get right to the point
I don't mean to offend.
Though I hate to disappoint
I'd like to hurry toward the end.
I prefer to spend my time alone
It’s easier that way.
In solitude my brilliance is shone
So a loner I will stay.
Sometimes I seek the company of friends
If there’s something to talk about.
And when the conversation ends
I’ll find my own way out.
I wasn't created in order to fit
I may push when you choose to pull.
Though I'm different you must admit
I keep life from becoming dull.
The myths of what makes others the norm
I hope one day to shatter.
I'm here to institute sweeping reform
That's one reason why I matter.
Please learn to love me for who I am
And not who you want me to be.
I'm open to what I can learn from you
But you must also learn from me
