Autism is a Rope

This poem was written by a fifteen-year-old girl who has a brother affected by autism.

Autism is a rope.

Holding you back.
It pulls at Your mind.
It puts you in the "dumb" category, 
You become out of the ordinary,

Autism is a rope.

Pulling you into its depths.
Nothing You can do,
But embrace it.
If only you knew what it really does,

Autism is a rope.

Taking control of your mind,
wrapping tight around you
So you can't leave its grasps,
You're part of the autistic crew,

Autism is a rope.

Hiding your full potential,
But letting you roam free,
Whispering You thoughts,
Wishing you could flee.

Autism is a rope.
