I Am What I Am


I'm a guy that's different,

but that doesn't mean I'm indifferent.

A guy that's diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome.

My social life maybe pretty hard,

but don't mistake me for a retard.

In the end, I will always overcome.


Please do not doubt me.

Please just let me be.

It is as hard as it is

because no one will ever understand

due for being diagnosed with Asperger's was unplanned.

If there is a problem, let's get down to the biz.
