Well, isnt that a question and a half? I can say what I am, thats easy. I am human, I am female, I am fifteen years, one hundred and ninety three days old (as of March 30th 2006) and Im a little over five foot two inches tall. But who I am is still a mystery. I have no idea who I am, and the more questions I ask, the more the answers seem to elude me, I just seem to be faced with more and more questions. In all reality its a vicious spiral, dragging me down deeper into the midst of an identity well its not an identity crisis, more of an identity search. Id love to know who I am, but the fact is I dont and I may never know. I have to ask why it matters? Why do humans constantly strive for acceptance, to be wanted and to fit in with everybody else, whilst at the same time strive for their individuality? How can it be possible to be both?
I am half Irish, and half English, born and raised in Leeds, West Yorkshire, Engl

Asking me to look you in the eye when you talk
Is like asking the child in the wheelchair to walk
You wouldn't do it so don't tell me
To brush my hair or go play PE
You get mad when I don't turn in my homework on time
But time at home isn't yours it's mine
I pay attention in class
I pass every exam
So what persay am I doing wrong?
Why do I get shouted at for staring at walls
In lessons if I'm already ahead of them all
I don't sleep at night and I play with the lights
There are codes on my desk and ladders in my tights
I really don't care but you seem to
You seem to have issues with everything I do
Yesterday was yellow and today is blue
So forgive me today if I can't talk to you
Difficult is as difficult does
Ask me to perform on stage and I could
But ask me to walk down a crowded street
And you'll find I'm way out of my league
Sometimes I'm late because I miss the bus
I did it on purpose the first was too full
I might throw a hissy fit in the middle
Something to talk aboutSometimes you need someone to talk to. Everybody does at some point. Sometimes you need someone, anyone just to put your feet back on the ground when things go haywire, but there are people in this world who dont have that, people who dont have that someone. I am not one of those people I have people to talk to, and I have people to lie to me and tell me the world is ok. But I dont want that. I am not ungrateful, I appreciate having people around the fact is however, I just dont like people.Something to talk about in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
This does not mean I am a bad person, and it doesnt mean I hate you. I am not singling anyone out individually; it is just my view that the human race as a whole is flawed. Everybody is so concerned about everyone elses business that they dont take care of themselves. Think about it if everyone just looked out for themselves, there would be no wars, just differences of opinions between individuals. I hate that everyone has the

Another RaceAspies (people with Asperger's) are another race.Another Race in Free Verse More Like This
They think differently,
They have their own "culture" in their own heads.
They seem to walk on air; always day-dreaming.
And they act real strange.
Constantly being seen as odd and bomarded with beleaguer and insults.
They are as unique as those with clairvoyance
And special abilities that are inhuman; like seeing the future.
People are contemptous and evil towards them that don't know their background.
If the disorder were a liasion and heavily communicated,
Ignorance would be gone.
They're all around us!
But you can't recognize them!
We can't communicate because of their lack of social structure.
No matter how you try, you just can't understand them.
They're too unique to be understood.
They are like aliens.
Yet, they're another race of humanity.
A child in mind for life,
They grow through help and encouragement.
Igorance from others stunts growth.
Kinds words are food;
Give it generously.
Their glowing eyes and glittery smiles should
My Life Having Asperger'sI have always felt that I was different. Different in the way I think, the way I feel, and the way I act. My life has been a roller coaster, having the anticipation as I climb the hill and having the rush of adrenaline as I race down. There have been times where I have been so stressed that the world seemed to have ended and other times where I have been so calm that the world seemed to have escaped from me. This has been my life; but there is more to it than just that. Throughout my life there has been affection and there has been rejection. Bliss and despair have contrasted themselves so divinely. These memories have both haunted me and delighted me in every sense. And in my short twenty years I have witnessed many things; some of which no one should ever go through.My Life Having Asperger's in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
