Autism Awareness: Part I: Indigo Children

April 27, 2009

It’s April, and I turn the news on:
There’s an ivory tower in the Amazon.
Those inside have angered the warriors
By concluding their children are not of the stars.
“How dare you?!” the warriors reply.
“My little boy’s perfect in my eyes.”
The tower goes silent. What can it say?
It deals in evidence, not emotion or faith.
So the women disperse, feeling they’d won,
And return home to their daughters and sons.

*****

These children really are different, in fact,
Throwing the families’ lives out of whack.
This one does not speak, another just screams.
When things are changed, they come apart at the seams.
Some don’t like to be touched, others hardly feel pain.
Many can’t stand sounds like a bell, or the rain.
When these troubled parents finally sleep
Dreams of their children’s recovery run deep
