I'm wiping the tears that I use to cry
When I thought my life was over 
And all I wanted to do 
was crawl up in a ball and die 
The pressures of life weighed me down
The chaos, the confusion, the fear
The tantrums, the meltdowns, the tears
That became my living nightmare

When I felt the walls closing in
And I thought I'd reached the end of rope 
I stepped out of the darkness 
And found a ray of hope 
I realized that the line between love and hate is very thin 
So I dried my tears and grew another layer of skin
I learned the true meaning of unconditional love
I found the courage to relinquish control
Then the puzzle came together 
and my life became whole 
I realized that my blessing
Was hidden in my curse 
For life is a journey 
No time to rehearse 
The role I play 
All depends on what I think and say
So I'll speak love, I'll speak hope, I'll speak life

I never knew how strong I was 
until being strong was the only choice I had
Though I'm only one voice in a million
I choose or maybe I was chosen to be 
The one to tell my Autism story 
Thai-lee's Life Through My Eyes 
My purpose, very clear 
My aim, to make a change 
To expel the stigma 
So it no long seem so strange 
For when it's all said and done
My Love For Autism is not just about my son 
So I'll wipe the tears that I use to cry
Stand my ground
And keep my head held high
