"Autism," Charles Pedlar, 10th Grade, Eximius College Prepatory School


Hope Love Hate
Questions rattle inside me like empty cans

For my soul is hollow and I'm so cold
 'cause i ain't got no home
Blinded by lies, deafened by my cries
though the sun rises again and again
my windows to see life are shut
My hungry mind craves answers
To my said-to-be rhetorical
questions. Silence and loneliness
in the house, they comfort me

Silence and loneliness.
