IT'S UP TO YOU
One song can spark a moment,
One flower can wake the dream.
One tree can start a forest,
One bird can herald spring.
One smile begins a friendship,
One handclasp lifts a soul.
One star can guide a ship at sea,
One word can frame the goal.
One vote can change a nation,
One sunbeam lights a room.
One candle wipes out darkness,
One laugh will conquer gloom.
One step must start each journey,
One word must start each prayer.
One hope will raise our spirits,
One touch will show you care.
One voice can speak with wisdom,
One heart can know what's true.
One life can make a difference,
You see, IT'S UP TO YOU!
Beautiful is something that starts within the heart.
Then all you say and all you do will also take a part.
Kindness can bring happiness to everybody’s day.
Your eyes will shine and sparkle, kindness always works that way.
A smile, a wave or friendly word is a super way to start,
You can bring such happiness to another persons’ heart.
Look into the mirror; I know that you will see
The beauty of your kindness reflected back for free.
Unable to speak, or maybe speaking too much
Hugging everyone, or disliking touch Escaping outside, Or trying to hide Excitedly flapping Inappropriate clapping Autism varies so much
Won't wear a coat, or wears one all year round Fussy eater, or would eat dirt from the ground Screaming or humming Annoyingly drumming Toys in a line The same way every time Autism varies so much
Struggling to learn, or has wonderful gifts Obsessions of numbers, trains, films or lifts Spinning around Throws things on the ground Constantly spitting Aggressively hitting Autism varies so much
Alone without friends, or controls every game Always looks different, always dresses the same Swinging on doors Head banging on floors Freaks at the dryer Keeps climbing higher Autism varies so much.
Can't answer questions, won't do as their told In their own world or bossy and bold Over prepared Anxious and scared A spectrum so wide But they all bring us pride When autism touches our lives.
