hey there was sitting at work on break feeling kind of mopey about life and such and thinking about alot of stuff I have been reading about other parent's of Autistic children and as an outlet of emotion I wrote the first Poem i've written in years so i decided to share hope you like it =)


THE STORM RAGES



Flesh of my Flesh
Heart of my Heart
Your tears are my rain
Your laughter my sun

Though the storm rages
With anger and hate
I’ll be your anchor
As you have been mine

How do I pierce the dark
Where you’re lost?
How do I find the
Light of your smile?

Though the storm rages
With fear and regret
I’ll be your anchor
As you have been mine

My heart is in turmoil
Watching you struggle
Wanting to help and
Not knowing how

This much I promise
This much I vow
No matter the storm
Or how it may rage

In you, around you
For or against you

I will be with you
I will be there
Fighting the rain
In search of my sun

That reads very much like lyrics and would be very moving set to music.

well I'm no hand at all with writing music but I wouldn't object if someone else with that talent chose to set my poem to music :D

So I found this while I was surfing the web tody and thought I would share


c1987 by Emily Perl Kingsley. All rights reserved

I am often asked to describe the experience of raising a child with a disability - to try to help people who have not shared that unique experience to understand it, to imagine how it would feel. It's like this......

When you're going to have a baby, it's like planning a fabulous vacation trip - to Italy. You buy a bunch of guide books and make your wonderful plans. The Coliseum. The Michelangelo David. The gondolas in Venice. You may learn some handy phrases in Italian. It's all very exciting.

After months of eager anticipation, the day finally arrives. You pack your bags and off you go. Several hours later, the plane lands. The stewardess comes in and says, "Welcome to Holland."

"Holland?!?" you say. "What do you mean Holland?? I signed up for Italy! I'm supposed to be in Italy. All my life I've dreamed of going to Italy."

But there's been a change in the flight plan. They've landed in Holland and there you must stay.

The important thing is that they haven't taken you to a horrible, disgusting, filthy place, full of pestilence, famine and disease. It's just a different place.

So you must go out and buy new guide books. And you must learn a whole new language. And you will meet a whole new group of people you would never have met.

It's just a different place. It's slower-paced than Italy, less flashy than Italy. But after you've been there for a while and you catch your breath, you look around.... and you begin to notice that Holland has windmills....and Holland has tulips. Holland even has Rembrandts.

But everyone you know is busy coming and going from Italy... and they're all bragging about what a wonderful time they had there. And for the rest of your life, you will say "Yes, that's where I was supposed to go. That's what I had planned."

And the pain of that will never, ever, ever, ever go away... because the loss of that dream is a very very significant loss.

But... if you spend your life mourning the fact that you didn't get to Italy, you may never be free to enjoy the very special, the very lovely things ... about Holland.
