Finding my voice in the autism community in a freer way than ever before…

There is a stirring,
A rising up as a chorus

Gradually strengthening in numbers,

As more join in

And blend into the beautiful tapestry…

An unfurling of notes curls over

And under

And all around me…

And in a thousand different tones

Fitted together, 

The lyrics speak of both 

Individual and collective truth

All at once,

My truth,

Our truth.

Autism truth.

Things we need,

Things we long for,

Unique in flavor

Yet woven together,

And united in soul… 

And I find the strength in the music 

To add my voice

And I find the bolstering of my heart

As I finally, actually begin to

Sound like me.
