Beyond The Shadow

Family & Memories

They're somewhere locked inside,

but if you look closely, you can see,

Beyond the shadow of Autism,

is a person like you and me.

There's a barrier in their mind,

they struggle so hard to cross.

And sometimes they get through,

while others remain lost.

Their abilities strongly vary,

some are gifted in many ways.

Yet some are slower to follow,

with smaller victories every day.

But each is a single person,

their personalities very unique.

For just beyond the shadow of Autism,

is the person that they seek.
