A beautiful and spot on account of perspective – what is a simple, daily act for some people is a massive hurdle for people with Autism and Asperger’s. If just one other person understands and acknowledges this feeling – the post is worth it.
You think you understand my autism but you really don’t
You asked me out for lunch tomorrow
Just a few of us, you said
But you see 5 is a few to you, 3 is a crowd to me.
If you really want to have lunch with me, why not just the two of us?
How can it be a few when everyone is out for lunch at the same time?
You see, it’s not a few at all when you consider the rest of the population and the queue in line.
These are the things you ignore.
These are the things I can’t ignore.
You said we’d go somewhere quiet.
But how are we getting there? I asked.
First you got to get on the bus!
During bloody lunch time!
So why do I want to put myself through all that trouble when I can enjoy my lunch in peace and quiet…
