Differing Viewpoints - by Eden Colvert

You never know when you catch the eye of another looking at you from across the room, what it is they think of you in that moment alone. I know that some look and think "beautiful but dumb" and are shocked the moment they hear them speak.  Others look and think looks good but I wonder.............well let me edge closer to hear them talk and OMG what a waste, dumber than a box of rocks but that's ok we can be friends but never lovers...........some look at only the outside while not really wanting the inside, while others look at the inside without really wanting to touch the outside at all.  When these 2 meet and the sparks begin to fly back and forth from one to another being the polar opposites that they are, starting off with the silly banter of the one looking at the outside and giggly replies of the one looking at the inside. The one looking at the outside showers all manners of words in hope to find the magic words that they have been taught to use to unlock that which they want in that moment alone, while the one looking inside giggles as they take those magic words and rearranges them in a more magical way to hand back in their exchanges of keys to locks...............which way will it go in the quest to unlock that of their highest desire in that moment alone, for you see the one looking at the inside can never become as one who looks only at the outside, but the one looking at the outside can become as one who looks at the inside too.

Neurotypical Burden - by Roman Soiko

Neurotypical Burden
Take up the neurotypical burden
take for all your might
help those condemned children
with all your heart hope and might
perhaps you want to work with drugs and labels
perhaps you want to memorize statutes
perhaps you have it with to argue with parents
every day and night
take up the neurotypical burden
take it if you will
help those poor condemned miserable children
half devil and half child
perhaps you are aware
that without your help
these children will flounder
under their combined miseries
without your angelic,altruistic messanic help
Take up the neurotypical burden
take if you will
fight for these children
because they cannot do it themselves
with every move and decision
make sure you watch them omnipresently
least they fall into autistic cataclysms
take up the neurotypical burden
take it up in the gavel halls of Pennsylvania
or perhaps in the austere halls of the United Nations
Take up the neurotypical burden
make sure you know
your hope inspiration and joy
is what keeps these children afloat
Take up the neurotypical burden
and make it clear as day and night
that you are the only reason why these children have any sight
