This is a poem I wrote, about AS and myself I guess.
(No title yet, any suggestion?)

O how it hurt to be me
How would you handle it?
I wonder what my life would be

If I was normal… O if I was like you!
My life would be great
If you had my life, would you even follow through?

Would you just beg to have your normal life back?
You feel the rejection, the pain, the loneliness.. The hate
Wouldn’t that be just great?

Then I’ll take your place
But you know what?
I would help to be your brace

I wouldn’t be like you
Judging, laughing I would help you to follow through
So please, do the same for me.

I would not beg to have my normal life back.

I feel my life is different from any others, therefore, is so precious.

I would not even want to have my normal life back.

i like it:)
except the use of 'follow through' twice bugged me a little and sounds slightly off.
imo

Yeah, that's what I thought. Don't take that the wrong way though, I'm not being arrogant, but you might want to start reading some other people's work.
