No friend to you

“He’s my friend”

“He just hit you”

“He’s my friend”

“He pushed you into a bush”

“He’s my friend”

“He held you down”

“He’s my friend”

“He’s no friend to you”

“She talked to me”

“You did not hear the nasty”

“She sat beside me willingly”

“So she could find more ammunition”

“She laughed with me”

“She laughed at you”

“She’s my friend”

“She’s no friend to you.”

Teens with ASD*

Sometimes have it rough

Unable to determine

Niceness and friendship

From the rot.

How can you tell a child

Desperate for some friends

That some who offer friendship

Are not doing it to be friends.

*ASD – Autism Spectrum Disorder – a condition along a spectrum where people’s brains are wired differently. This makes it very hard for people with ASD to pick up social cues. For more information click here.
