Day 93: “I Wish I Didn’t Have Aspergers” (Flash Blog)

Because I Know 

You are beautiful

You are absolutely beautiful

Can you not see what a beauty you are?

When people hurt you

They do not see you

They do not know you

They do not realize

You are beyond them

A mystery

The unknown

It scares them

They expect things that cannot be

They do not comprehend

And I am sorry

Some won’t ever completely understand

As much as you try

For you are a bright, bright light

And Precious One

Your beauty blinds them

You are a gift

Every life you touch changed for the better

This is already happening

You are an earth-shaker, a mover, and a maker

Nothing about you is ordinary or boring

You are so fabulously unique

Wrapped in the finest paper and richest ribbons—with your perfect heart at the center

You make my being swell with joy

You are not a mistake

Do not believe anyone who tells you this falsehood

They are wrong

Completely wrong

You are exactly perfect

You are closer to an angel

Than anyone I know

You have these magnificent invisible wings

You can fly to places the rest cannot

You have the vision of a prophet

The mind of a wise man

You have the capacity within

To change our universe

You see the world as it is

Without pretense or imaginings

You see people at their core

You understand more than you can say

And say more than you understand

You are a dichotomy

A puzzle

An amazing spirit set down to show the way

There is not one millimeter about you I would change

Ever

Nothing I would alter, take away, or replace

Nothing I would add or improve upon

You were made as you are

Like the stars in the sky

I have no wish to stop you from shining

I know your journey is very hard

There is no doubt about this

And I am sorry for your pains

You, of all people, deserve happiness

I know that you cry

I know that you question

I know you beg to be different

And that breaks my heart

But that’s okay

Let yourself weep

Because I know you are brave

In hard times

Remember that I am here

Still walking

And I need you

I need you here with me

I need you to be you

Without you I am emptied

Remember me

With my invisible wings

And know, though we have never met

I love you

I know how remarkable you are

And there is nothing you can do to change that

Nothing at all

    1. Love, love, love your response.
      I went back and reread myself and cried with you!
      A flash blog is when a bunch of people write about the same thing on the same day. Like flash mob dancers at the mall.
      You are such a SWEETHEART. So Glad to Know YOU!
      Much light and love to you 🙂 Sam

      1. Love you you crazy lady…would that be freshly cut grass after a mild shower, cinnamon maybe, oh…I know freshly ground coffee first thing in the morning. Or it could be puppies, I like the smell of puppies, not wet dogs though….Ewwww….LOL

  2. Tears and goosebumps and more tears. Thank you Sam for such a lovely poem. I can imagine our anonymous friend, reading and finding such comfort. You have comforted me. Bless you.

    1. You inspired me to post this. I had another post all set to go. (I will post it tomorrow) and right when I was going to hit publish, I read your comment to me from your blog: “Can’t wait to see what you write.” And I thought: I need to be part of this; it’s important.

      When I tried to write, I couldn’t think of anything that the poem I’d written before didn’t already say. So I posted the poem—Thanks to you.

      See how the world works…little ripples of love xoxo Sam

      1. Sam,

        I am deeply honored to be a part of the process that led to this post. Thank you for telling me!

        I am thrilled by all of the responses and it has given me great pleasure to imagine my young self reading these marvelous posts. I feel a part of myself being filled that was long ago empty. I’m glad you are a part of that! 🙂

    1. It was Quiet Week and another blogger George that inspired me (from their blogs) to share this poem. I wrote it before and was going to write something else for today. But the poem says it all for me. Thank you for your support. Love ~ Sam 🙂

      1. SAMMY SORRY THE TEARS – THEY GOT IN THE WAY AND THEN I PRESSED “FLASH ” AND THEN CAME BACK AND THE TEARS WERE STILL ROLLING AND THOUGHT I DIDN’T MAKE A COMMENT —-
        SO ….. YIKES LADY …..
        YOU SO ROCK …….
        YOU ARE SO ALTRUISTIC ….
        I LOVE YOU

  3. I don’t understand what the big fuss is about someone wishing they didn’t have AS. I used to feel the same way and now I don’t think it’s a big deal I have it. I now wish I didn’t have anxiety or any learning problems. I think those two give me more problems than my Asperger’s.

    1. As I imagine you know, everyone experiences AS differently. People just finding out, teenagers facing depressing and isolation, etc. may be struggling with the diagnosis. I understand about the anxiety part. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Sam

  4. Sam….This is so beautiful and brilliant and so you….Truly samtastic…and sigh….it’s sad sometimes that frustration can bring artistry, but you are an amazing artist….

    1. Your kindergarten children must love you. You are so full of praise. 🙂
      Yes, it’s that sadness that makes us artists reach a deep soul-level.
      Great to connect.
      Keep up your awesome poems.
      Sam

      1. got to have that 90 to 10 positive to negative ratio lol…You’re a great writer and your pieces are not only technically good, but they are deeply touching…It’s easy to want to praise that

    1. I don’t know if you recognize it. This is a poem I wrote when I first started blogging. But I never assigned the poem to a day #93. So this worked out perfectly. I couldn’t put into words what I felt, better than this poem. I was thinking: “Oh, no, George has seen this already.” And then I had a good laugh at my silly self (LV). Thanks for the cheers. Your post was awesome. 🙂 Sam

  5. This one gave me chills and tears. I hope our searcher finds you. There is so much to read and learn and to laugh about together. This would be a good place to call “home”. xoxo

  6. very uplifting thoughts, Sam…thank you very much!!!! totally enthralled by the positively charged body of words 🙂 🙂 YES to ASPERGER’S!!!! YES to US ASPIES!!!! and YES, it’s a wonderful world…i couldn’t ask for more…i’m soooo full of gratitude beyond words to the GREAT CREATOR of you and me…{{{{hugssss}}}}

  7. I had to share this with my aspie daughter (my own personal little female “Edgar Allan Poe”) with love from her aspie mom. I hope this brightens her spirits when every day life is such a struggle.

Thank you for your comments :)
