Acceptance for Acceptors by Andrew Bloomfield

I read the news,
that in this world,
we fear…..
the homeless,
the depressed,
the different.

I am here and I am different:
no need to fear me.

I hear there is a new friend
who has a message:
“Accept everyone,” she says.
“Accept those of us who are autistic.”

I wonder if you will accept
what she is telling you,
or think she is just a mother in denial.

Listen and be moved.
