"Determine to live life with flair and laughter." Maya Angelou

Stuck inside an empty box
No one understands me
There’s a door, but it’s locked
I just want to be free

Trapped inside my own world
Looking for a way
To be like other people
At least for one day

People point and laugh and stare
I’m not quite sure why.
I am strange and weird to them,
I just want to cry.

I may be different, but that’s ok
My family and friends love me so
I won’t let you take away my spark.
I’m better then you’ll ever know.

The author's comments:
I dedicate this piece to my brother. He is autistic and I found that the best way to honor him, and anyone, is through a piece of literature. It becomes personal, original and meaningful.
