Guest Post: Scott Lentine Can't You See

Today's guest post is a beautiful poem by Scott Lentine.  You can find him blogging on his own site Scott Lentine.

I am Scott Lentine, a 25 year old man with high-functioning autism (PDD-NOS/Asperger’s) from Billerica, MA, outside of Boston and summer resident of Marshfield, MA. I graduated from Merrimack College in 2010 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Religious Studies with a Minor in Biology. I also have written poems in the past year about autism and Marshfield. I love meeting new people, dogs, the beach, hanging out with friends in Boston and elsewhere.



Can’t You See
Can’t you see


I just want to have a friend

Can’t you see

I need the same connections in the end



Can’t you see

I want a good job

Can’t you see

I need to have stability and be part of the general mob



Can’t you see

I want to be independent on my own

Can’t you see

I want to be able to have my own home



Can’t you see

I want the same things as everyone else

Can’t you see

I want to be appreciated for myself
