I Am Sorry For Being Me

I am the stigma  
That stirs the pot  
The label  
That flaps in the breeze  
I exist  
Only in a scientific paper  
Revealing my faults  
As if it was a shopping list  
Where perfection  
Is regarded as beauty  
I am the ugly face  
That humanity tries to hide  
The inkblot that smudges  
But won’t be erased  
My voice an irritation  
That shouldn’t be heard  
The message is clear  
Stay invisible  
The masses hate  
The weirdness I radiate  
So to save your blushes  
The guilt you might hide  
I say sorry for the mutation  
That made me Autistic  
Sorry that your compassion  
Was lacking in someway  
That my condition  
Highlighted your ignorance  
That embarrassment you felt  
When I lost control  
I’m sorry my brain  
Goes into overload  
I apologise for my short comings  
As a human being  
Cause when it comes down to it  
The word sorry isn’t on your lips
