I am a boy who can’t say a lot, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want you to give me a shot.
I like to ride my bike, play hot wheels and chase. And you most likely can find me in any outdoors space.
I am a boy who won’t often answer back, but that doesn’t mean understanding I lack.
I am funny and loving just like you. So please don’t ignore me or walk away like you do.
You see my brain and my mouth are not in touch quite like yours. While inside I can speak, what you hear can be obscured.
I am working so hard to get the sounds out like you, so please have patience if it sounds all jumbled and confused.
You can say, show me and I can touch a word or two on my device or look and me and listen as my gestures will suffice.
You will know what I need and we can be best friends, because I am just like you, I don’t need to pretend.
Treat me the same as you would anyone. Just allow me to show you what I can become.
Because I am smart and as clever as you, don’t presume that I can’t, I can do all you can do.
I am a boy who can’t say a lot. But the real question is, will you give me a shot?
