~ I am inside. ~ The words are there; the voice is not. ~ It is lonely and sad not to talk. ~ We who are silent have our value. ~ Being autistic is a battle that stays. ~ Your world hurts me. ~ Sounds pay me visits after I leave them. ~ I need autism to breathe. ~ Autism is awful, but I am not awful. ~ I act dumb but am smart. Please be my friend. ~ We can’t be friends when you hate autism. ~ Be an explorer who finds treasure beyond the strangeness.
