And that’s just fine
I talk too much at times
And other times I close myself off to the world
But that’s okay
It’s who I am, and how I function
I worry a lot, too much, likely
But my heart is super huge, like a mountain upon a mountain on the highest peak, it is
I love my weirdness
It’s like yours
It’s quirky and cute and interesting
I love me a lot
Like chocolate, only better
People don’t crave me and overstuff me
They just enjoy
As long as I enjoy me
And that’s good
If I let myself shine
If I recognize my beauty
Then people with heart
The real me
See themselves, in me
And then together
We can think
But I like her!

Yep. In agreement 🙂
You are quite loveable, Sam~ ❤

I am glad you are this odd or the world would be really a boring place with no new stories no fun….
I’m glad you are you. Such a ray of light. xo
That brought a smile to my face 😀
I love this poem!
Totally sums up being an Aspie. Self-acceptance is a wonderful thing 🙂
Thank you. Yes, you are right. 🙂
I love this. I wish I could get it through my head that its ok to be different! I live in a small town, and I am just the weird mother (I have two kids, one in elementary school).
Be patient with yourself. I’ve been processing and working on self-acceptance for almost a decade. Hugs.
I loved this. Accepting ourselves the way we are is the toughest job in this world. And it’s wonderful that you’ve passed on this message so beautifully with your words, Sam. Beautiful and meaningful Poem!
Thank you for your visit and lovely words.
I do like you a lot and some of it is because you love yourself.
Ah, thanks blogging-bro. 🙂
I watched a wonderful talk on TED talks about a girl who has two autistic brothers . She says “the pursuit of normality is the ultimate sacrifice in potential”. Its a very beautiful, heart-warming talk. Look for Faith Jegede on http://www.TED.com. Enjoy and take heart.
I’m writing myself a post it note to come back and watch this! thanks 🙂
