Breaks again

There are days I cannot handle

The stories just repeat

Students with disabilities

So damned hard to teach.

I am not talking adds and multiplies

Or the ins and outs of poetry

I’m talking about how students know

That they deserve more.

These students with ASD

Do not understand the simple things

Of what is right and what is wrong

And what is simply not to be done.

My heart has broken too many times

I do not know when is the line

To stop, because I cannot.

I try my best each and every day

To make a difference in any way

Yet the same bad stories

Play and play

And my heart breaks again.
