Shane has monsters inside his brain
Shane has demons inside his brain
Shane wants to be able to fight off the demons and monsters
But it’s hard! Hard! Hard!
Hard as a rock
Hard as a stone
Hard as a high hill when you are all alone.
“Very hard” he said, and his arm was heavy
His body was heavy
His soul was heavy
His mind was heavy with aching heaviness
Crazy spirals of madness swirled around him.
He was lost in the freezing mists of confusion and despair.
Being able to type gave him some hope
But still the monsters laughed and destroyed his happiness.
But there was a time when it began to change
He left the school for idiots
And began his journey into the world of people and joy.
The journey began slowly and he wasn’t very good at it.
Little by little he groped his way forward
Sliding in the mud of autism that threatened to smother him at every step.
Sometimes he was on solid ground
But it was mostly slow but steady.
He was able to climb the hill and knew that one day it would be easier.
