It’s a poem about my younger son, who’s been diagnosed with infantile autism. He’s full of energy & never afraid of anything the one moment. But the next, he’s vulnerable, insecure, having meltdowns. Sometimes it’s difficult for him to differentiate between reality & fiction. I see this all as a blessing in disguise as I’m learning so many things from the little zen master, who’s purely divine. My heart melts when I see him happy & sad; whatever his state of mind, he’s full of passion. I love him & connect with him all the way, even though it’s sometimes crazy tough to “handle” him & match his physical energy. No matter what, I’ll be there for him till my last breath.
It’s a story of this unique kind
Naked spirit & so divine
Full of energy, a playful type
A real handful at certain times
Not afraid of jumping from the skies
The sensitive soul in fluctuations & noise
Is the purest blessing in innocent disguise
Love the passion in the beautiful big eyes
Expresses the joy & pain in hyper ways
A new colorful day begins
Under the shining blue stars
The intense fire is burning
In deep space with black holes & scars
Striding towards big world in smaller shoes so cute
Mesmerized by depictions of fiction as if it’s all so true
Sensible are the two words in mind
Let me be, just let me be, are the heartfelt screams
Or perhaps standing all alone, sounds like a scary dream
Visuals are heavier, on that delicate little screen
Emotions are throwing curves, heart is simply streaming
Start now to connect the first alphabet of every single line
Sacred connection you’ll discover, it’s just not a simple rhyme
