Look I am a Rainbow (written for my 10 year old with autism)
unknown

Look I am rainbow, so many colours from happy to sad,
 1
 
 
Look I am a rainbow, calming through to mad.
 2
 
 
Today I am slippery snake slithering trying to hide
 3
 
 
Today I'm a baby elephant right next to mummies side.
 4
 
 
I am confused at all the things I see and struggling to hold on
 5
 
 
I am lost in my own thoughts you see and don't know what is wrong.
 6
 
 
But...
 7
 
 
Look I am a rainbow beautiful and unique
 8
 
 
Look I am a rainbow, one of a kind so to speak.
 9
 
 
Today I'm a lively  monkey, I just Can't keep still
 10
 
 
Today I'm a circus lion, I'm doing it for the thrill
 11
 
 
You see me I am laughing, but sometimes I don't know why
 12
 
 
You see me I am angry, confused and want to cry
 13
 
 
 
 
But...
 14
 
 
Look I am a rainbow, I sing to my own song,
 15
 
 
Look I am a rainbow, magnificent in the storm
 16
 
 
Today I am dinosaur I am fierce and roaring loud
 17
 
 
Today I am a timid mouse who's lost in an overwhelming crowd.
 18
 
 
Don't think I'm being naughty, spoiled or being bad
 19
 
 
Don't think I'm being horrid because really I am sad
 20
 
 
 
 
But...
 21
 
 
Look I am rainbow I am lighting up dark skies
 22
 
 
Look I am a rainbow and you'll see with your own eyes
 23
 
 
The slippery snake and elephant who stands by mummies side,
 24
 
 
The lively bouncy monkey and the lion filled with pride,
 25
 
 
The dinosaur who's fierce and loud, the timid mouse lost in a crowd...
 26
 
 
I am them and they are all me
 27
I am the one who cannot see
 28
A world in which I am the same
 29
I have a very different brain
 30
I still hurt, love, laugh and cry
 31
I carry on and always try
 32
 
 
Look I am a rainbow see, I am beautiful just
 33
Being me.
