A Poem By My Daughter – Expressions of PosAutivity: #AutismPositivity2014

By Erin and her Daughter

This poem was written by my 13 year old daughter and she wanted to share it for the Autism Positivity Flashblog 2014 – Expressions of PosAutivity. “Water and Waves” is my daughter’s comfort thought. She pictures water and waves in her mind when she is stressed and anxious. Thinking “Water and Waves” helps my daughter focus when her thoughts are all jumbled. My daughter communicates and expresses herself through poems, songs, and pictures. She is an amazingly creative person.



Written on April 14, 2014 – Inspired by the Disney Pocahontas song, “Just Around the River Bend”.  


Down by the Riverside

By: H 


Where the green grass grows

Where the animals graze

Where the kids play 

Where the water flows

Where the fish swim

Where the green algae grows
