The Realistic Autistic

I awake autistic
I go to sleep autistic
But somehow in between I’m
Expected not to be.
I awake in pain
I go to sleep in pain
Yet I cannot yield and
Allow it to slow me down (much).
My entire life is a denial.
Yet when I hope for something wonderful,
I’m expected to be realistic.
