Autistics Speaking Day

I have a lot to say, but I don’t always know how to say it.

I have a lot to say, but I don’t know if you will understand me.

I have a lot to say, but I can’t get the words out.

I want to scream, but you’ll say that I’m being dramatic,

that I’m having a tantrum,

that I’m not behaving like an adult.

Spend a day in my head and you’ll see what it’s like

to be a woman,

to be autistic,

to be inattentive,

to be hyperfocused,

to be misunderstood,

to be maligned.

I have a lot to say, but I don’t always know how to say it.
