'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”

      I have a stack from the last five years, but I don’t think they’re good enough to put on the internet 💜 But thank you 😆
