He'll no be there

by John Makin

A smart young man was out one day

Clipboard in his hand,

When down the street he chanced to meet

A worker of the land.

“Do you know Old farmer Giles

That works the Bank Top Farm?”

“Happen I do”, he says and smiles

And takes him by the arm.

“Go down the street and round the bend

And up the covered way,

Then along the road right to the end

And two miles up the brae.”


“Well thank you very much indeed,

Don’t Wanna Fall by Claudia Scali


I don't know why I'm here.
I don't know what I've become.
My whole worlds disappeared.
Now all I fee is numb.

I'm just trying to make my way,
make my way, make it now.
Trying to have my voice,
have my voice be heard out.

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.
