‘They Said I Was A Freak’; a poem to a friend.

Over on several blogs I’ve seen several Bloggers posting their original poetry. So, here’s one I wrote myself-I don’t recall doing so-which I thought I should post it. I believe I wrote this whilst thinking about how hard it is to make friends, being a teenager with Aspergers Syndrome; a friend comes to mind when I read this, as she was so nice to me about it.


“They said I was a freak

For being a dreamer

A believer

Daring to dream in colour

The friendship of many

Apparently a valuable

Worthwhile to seek

In those long ago years

Dreaming is not

To be deceiving

But people like you

I’m thankful for

And I hold memories dear

Like this”

If you’d like to see other original poems, I suggest you check out Chloe Mayes’ website; she has recently gone self hosted, and has written this original poem (click here to view) If you would like tips as to how to write poetry, I’d also point you in the direction of Too Cute For Life (incredible blog) with this post.
