Jake’s 1st poem written at RPM camp with Amy Brennan
Not sure of this line
Really silly not to rhyme the words
Lots of many worries in my mind
So not sure today
This was his first poem written (at age 22) with Amy Brennan at an RPM Camp via our local support group.
Also at the age of 22 he began expressing his very personal thoughts and feelings more fluently with me (his mom), and it was his idea to begin writing “The Story of My Life” one day. He is diagnosed with severe autism as well as intermittent explosive disorder. He has given me permission to share his story and our conversations.
He continually expresses his desire to “find purpose” to his life…I hope his willingness to share will help others learn about this misunderstood condition known as “autism” that has so much to teach us all.
