Truly I have only briefly been aware:
—that my friends care for me deeply.
—that they all wish for me to grow.
—that they all hope I will feel a part of the world.
I felt I was a social outcast.
Society had nothing to offer me.
No one could understand my life.
I wished that I was someone else.
My growth as a human was stunted.
My changes were gradual.
I did not notice that I was different.
The barriers fell as I spent time with friends.
Now I don’t feel so broken.
