Of awesome drumbeats and loud guitars and soothing music,
kites flying so high, and liking the wind blowing in my face.
I'm made of happy, good smells,
of deodorant, chicken nuggets and fries.
Of pleasant sunny days, going parasailing,
of trampolines, playgrounds and sprinklers,
of walks around VOA park, of rides at King's Island.
Of liking cold, snow days with no school,
Legos, reading books on Kindle, basketball and gymnastics.
Of having a restless, autistic body, lots of overwhelming sensations,
Of feeling anxious, really no telling when my body will suddenly move on its own,
of working to understand my autistic body,
of terrific memory, of bold writing, of being able to read a page with one glance.
Of wishing for total inclusion, I want to let hope have reign.
Of long drives, of Florida beaches and outdoors
I'm made of hugs and meeting people and waterfalls.
