Poem By Autism Adult

Poem By Autism Adult

I received this in my email, and wanted to share.  It’s a poem written by and adult with high functioning autism.  I’ve also included the information he included about himself.  I hope you enjoy.

I am Scott Lentine, a 26 year old man with high-functioning autism (PDD-NOS/Asperger’s) from Billerica, MA, outside of Boston. I

graduated from Merrimack College magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s

Degree in Religious Studies with a Biology minor. I am currently an

office intern at the Arc of Massachusetts in Waltham, where I try to

persuade lawmakers to pass key disability resources legislation to

improve the lives of people with developmental disabilities. I have some autism

song/poems in this email that I wanted to have you read and show to

people you know on the autism spectrum and to friends you know who

support autism causes. I hope you and your friends love these poems! I

also have a blog on WordPress about autism. The link is

poems and blog!



Scott Lentine



Just a Normal Day


Never knowing what to say


Never knowing what to do


Always looking for clues


Just a normal day




Feeling unsure


Totally perplexed with everyday life


Always on edge never certain


I wish I could lift this curtain


Needing to constantly satisfy my need for information


Always online searching for new revelations


Going from site to site


Obtaining new insights every night




Trying to connect with people my age


Attempting to reveal my unique vision


But ending up alone and unengaged


Feeling like my needs a total revision


Just a normal day
