Sometimes I feel like this bench. Alone, unwanted

and looking at something happy it can never touch.

It feels so close, but I just can't reach it, as

something is holding me back. My family sit with me,

they take care of me and they love me. This is what

stops me being this bench and turns me into a swan.

Autism can be lonely, all it takes is understanding

and patience, then you can also turn someone into a


Lonely bench
