The Aspie aspect of me
Conjures up scenarios
Twisting and turning
Through my neurodiversity
Sometimes making them real
They’re so logically true
But when up against
So-called reality
Tells me I’m wrong
Am I? I ask myself
How do we know
What is below
The river’s surface?
How do we decide
If there be dragons
Who comfortably abide
In the corners of the world?
Is it a lie?
Maybe I’m neuroacceptant…

  1. An interesting wander into reality. Neurotypical is considered abnormal by psychologists while admitting that 149 out of 150 people are neurotypical! So… (doing my Steven Wright imitation) what’s normal? How about this approach: There is no fact; no truth, no reality. Without facts, there is no fake. Without truth, there are no lies. Without reality there is no unreality. Believe all things, believe IN nothing! When none of it matters, it is all yours. Nothing is impossible. (You can take that both ways, that it is impossible for there to be nothing, or that everything is possible, including dragons comfortably abiding in the corners of the world). And speaking of Steven Wright… quote: ““I have a hobby. I have the world’s largest collection of sea shells. I keep it scattered on beaches all over the world. Maybe you’ve seen some of it.” ― Steven Wright
