Because Of You

by Kirst Lou Crack

I was alone

In my own little zone - autism then unknown!
Scared and afraid
I kept quiet -- lost and confused

Feeling stolen yet somewhat bruised by it all
Surprised why I didn't feel important or tall!
In the facts, I felt tinier than small

I didn't have a loud voice back then
I had nothing of any opinion or any choice
I didn't mind or care
Because I wasn't someone special by their

I was that someone who closed their eyes
To be used, dropped, abused
Why should I tell anyone?
When I wanted to sell
Who? The truth was me
Because of guess who, you!

Time stands still
Moving until
The world stops completely
Some would like
Others would not
Some have a choice it in
Others do not!

And why...
Because it's life
As life hurts now and again
Causes endless pain
And the stupid pathetic mind games
That come with "it"

A part of it
Stand alone with me and it
It and me
So next time please look more carefully!
