i’m only doing what others do
what you do, what they do
saying what i think, what i believe
speaking my mind
standing up for what i believe in
but because i’m different
i’m not allowed to
have a mind of my own
to think independently
to make up my own mind
to have my own opinions
to use my voice
to say what i think
say what i believe
but for some reason
i must conform
to the elite
and powerful of society
a young female
with Asperger’s should
not talk to them
like this they say
she should be quiet
respectful, go to school
meet someone, settle down
know her place in society
do what they want her to do
not do what she wants to do
so they call me names
but i’m used to that
i ignore the names
ignore the calls for me
to shut up and be quiet
i will use my voice
to say what i think
to stand up for what i believe
to make a difference
to this world
to make it a better place
for everyone
if they don’t like it tough!
it’s their problem not mine
it’s them who need
to look in the mirror
and ask themselves
am i right?
is this the world
i want to live in?
is this the world
i want to leave
for future generations?
well is it?
