I used to cringe at the, "Politically correct," label,
Referring to me and my kind as, "Differently able,"
I used to think, "For fucks sake, just say disabled, it's fine,"
Although in my case, not so obvious, as the issue is my mind,
And then I heard a young man explain his autism,
How he thanked God for it, I loved his optimism,
But it was true that the focus of his unique mind,
Meant that in his field, he left everyone else behind,
And that's when it struck me, what we bring to the table,
And why we should embrace that label of, "Differently able,"
'Cos when faced with the trials of life, we should be truly thankful,
That we all seek solutions from a different angle.
