Editor’s Note: I’m including this submission because I think Alyssa’s perspective is interesting, and this piece has information that may be helpful for people to read. However, the wording often makes it seem like autistic (including aspies, of course) experiences are universal, which is not true. It’s important to remember that autistic people are not all the same and do not necessarily experience autistic things or anything else in the exact same ways, and that is okay.

The Glass Tower

By John Makin

(TW: emotional abuse, imprisonment)

Have you seen the big glass tower where everyone can live
Where everybody has a place, a role, something to give
For everyone is wanted there and none feels out of place
But still I'm outside looking in upon that awesome space

I feel the cold, I feel the dark, my face pressed to the glass
Watching people come and go and through those portals pass
