She lives in a world all of her own
Of brilliant blues and dazzling greens
Sunshine more radiant than you could ever imagine
Sweet aromas of fresh flowers and 
Strawberries lace the air

She speaks her own secret language
Broken sentences and mismatched syllables
Incomprehensible melodies
Playful sing-songs and heartfelt tunes
She dances to her own beat

You will never understand the wonder
Of a bubble dancing in the breeze
Glistening pinks, purples and blues 
There is nothing more beautiful to her

You will never battle the difficulties
Of not being able to say what enters your heart or mind
A prisoner of yourself
Trapped behind your own tongue
Choking on your words as you try to speak

And while she struggles
While each day is an uphill battle
In a war that will span a lifetime
You'll never see the world in all it's wonder
In all it's beauty
In all it's glory 
As she does
It's different from her point of view. All of it.

Does this have to do with Synesthesia?

No, it's about Autism.

The first stanza completely drew me in. This is such a vibrant and unique poem, I feel like all my senses are catered to here inspired... And the narrative arc is beautiful. This is one of the most memorable things I've ever read here on DA- thank you! :aww:

This is really very beautiful :heart: I feel like I know what that girl's going through, with the whole "seeing the world in a different way" and "trapped in her own tongue" thing.

You, sir/madam, have talent!

Thank you! :heart: This was written about my daughter. She has Autism and her speech is severely impaired so she has a lot of difficulty communicating her wants and needs.

Aww :( That's awful! I've got a cousin who's autistic. She's 4 years old and comprehends the world on a baby's level. She can't really speak yet and she can't function very well. It's horribly depressing because I can see she so wants to learn about her world. And I bet your daughter is the same.

You never know how important words are until you watch someone struggle with them. It's something I took for granted.
