I Am

I am
More than the sum
Of my autistic traits

They over shadow the reality
Served my country in the armed forces
Currently work for National Health Service
 
If I had been diagnosed in early life
Would never have done anything
The title is stigma enough

For the shutters to come down
Discrimination is rife
As black lives matter so do autistic lives
