Nishant Sriram has learnt to do yoga asanas. He he has depicted the energy he receives from the Sun.
By Ishaan Holloway
The sun shines brightly,
The sky is a beautiful shade of blue,
The summer breeze caresses my face,
The sounds of Summer are all around,
I feel alive!
And Autism is momentarily forgotten,
As I see God’s beneficence at work.
Nishant Sriram sits in the sun for a few minutes every day and soaks in the warmth and takes in the vibrant kaleidoscope in the sky at sunrise and sunset.
Prithvi Ramkumar, Age 21

A LIFE’S MISSION
An advocate needs optimism,
He needs strength,
To fill the fearsome gaps,
Opinions need to be aired,
And mistakes accepted,
The first move is the most difficult,
But nothing is impossible,
No matter what comes my way,
I will overcome and succeed!
I TRIED OUT LOUD
I tried to control myself,
I did my very best,
But my mind did not listen,
Somehow I need to make myself hear,
So that the good wins over the bad,
And my soul can live in peace.
The Art of Autism is grateful to all our contributors. Please continue to share. See you next year!
