Autistic Boy Writes A Poem For Homework. The Words Left His Teacher Completely Speechless


He always felt different from the other students…

#1 “I Am”

Benjamin was born with autism, which always caused him to feel separated and different from his classmates in school. A school assignment required Benjamin to explain what life is like to be him…and it’s completely heartbreaking.

#2 His Poem

“I feel like a boy in outer space / I touch the stars and feel out of place,” he writes. “I say I ‘feel like a castaway’ / I dream of a day that thats okay.”

#3 National Autism Association

Bens poem has since gone viral, with the National Autism Association reposting his brave writing. We have to say this is the purest explanation of what it’s like to live with autism that we’ve ever read.
