Equality"Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness"
That is what the United States declaration of independence says we all have a right as humans to. We need to start living up to what we said as we became our own independent country.
Growing up, I had autism. I always knew something was different about me, even before I knew what autism was. I remember I didn't act like other kids. I didn't have very many friends, and the ones I did have weren't really "real" friends. After I started middle school, I was finally directly told I had autism and I felt like I was nobody. Since the phrase was dropped, every time I did something foolish, my family would tell me "oh, she just has autism." or "She just has autism, she'll lighten up eventually." and eventually it was like anything foolish or any mistake I made had the "autism" label on it that would ring in my head like a broken record.

You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
