THE GENIUS INSIDE ME
Hidden beneath the blank stare, broken smile,
trapped is the spirit of an extraordinary child.
Locked behind a door for which there is no key
kicking and screaming wanting to be free.
Detached from the world that I see outside,
I create a world in which I hide
The things I see,
the shapes, the sounds
to which has no limits, no bounds.
A mystery to those who don't understand,
the doctors, the scientist, the ordinary man.
They pick my brain, dissecting it,
trying to figure out where I fit.
With no explanations, no reasons why
they label me retarded
just because I'm shy.
They say I'm stupid and have no hope
because they can't define what they see under the microscope.
But like Beethoven, Mozart and Bach
Einstein, Newton and Bell
there is so much to tell.
I'm a composer, inventor, scientist and so much more,
like Spielberg, Jobs and the ingenious Laurence Kim Peek,
don't count me out because your language I don't speak.
I'm going to change the world in which you live,
for I have so much more to give
