My Autistic Brother (Petrarchan Sonnet)


Some consider it an encumbrance

But I use it as motivation

There is no reason to have frustration

As I grind I know my life is limitless

My brother knows my success is imminent

During any given situation

I am able to use my education

And prove to people that I am legitimate

My brother will never live a normal life

So I always keep him in mind

As I strive for my goals and accomplish my dreams

Not having a normal brother sometimes hurts like a knife

However he is truly a blessing; I have never wined

I am determined to succeed by all means
