A Bit Of Aspergian Infinity

wamtac

I asked everyone last night to leave something positive in the comments (https://marylandpoetblog.wordpress.com/2017/01/10/an-aspergians-letter-to-old-friends/) and I would use it in a poem. Well, here it is. To tell the truth, reading the comments on my blog over the past month have really  cheered me up. I’ve realized that I have an amazing following, and you are all so encouraging and helpful, that I couldn’t feel sad anymore. My self-confidence may not be high, but knowing that there’s someone rooting for me, well, that makes me want to do my best.

Digging deep down

Infinity on High in the background

“Baby boy can’t lift his headache head”

“Isn’t it tragic?”

I know what’s tragic

not being able to conjure any magic

the words and emotions of  friends and strangers

I just pass it

Your hand reaching out

burns this devil

the inner doubt

never comes out

I never come out

never

come

out

or risk upsetting

something I didn’t create

I just manage it

like Alex Smith on third and eight

Look too deep, I might make a mistake

So I take off, slide for a few

If only they knew

that I have a big heart

and want to play this part

without ridicule

without shame

so what if it’s got a crazy name

that’s me

me

And I love this life

I love my words

I love to give

strength and courage to others

Maybe I’ll never be the guy

that leads a march

But give me a pen

or some computer keys

and the truth you’ll have to see

“Thanks for the memories” he says

still not any sweeter

but I’m glad to have met her

In a little time

I learned

that one try

can lead to years of hope

To shake the cobwebs of apathy

you must cling

grope

everything you love dearly

whether it be much

or little

the answer

is simple

This life

is worth holding onto

and till death do us part

I’m going to share it with you

          1. Nah, when I don’t watch the team I want to win, they usually do. Once I start watching again they lose. So, if I watch this weekend, Dallas will win, therefore, I will not watch.

            I wanted Clemson to win so I didn’t watch. Guess what? It worked. 🙂
