My Name is Teddy by Joanna Marie
Hello my name is teddy.
I am six years old.
I live with my family
But me they do not know
They tell me I have autism
This makes me act real strange
They don't like the screaming rocking and biting
So me, they wish to change
Mother said she found a "miracle"
That will make me act real good
Take your medicine teddy.
Like a good boy should.
They force the medicine in my mouth
And I try to be real good
But when they put the medicine in
It hurts more then medicine should
I cry I scream I bang my head
But the pain won't go away
It makes me weak it makes me tired
And it makes me sick all day.
Mommy is so happy
Now that I can't scream or cry
But I feel so sick and weak
I think I'd rather die
Mommy thinks I'm better
But my voice she doesn't hear
This "medicine" only makes me worse.
But she only listens with her ears
Can somebody please help me.
Can they make the medicine go away
The medicine is hurting me
Don't make me take it another day
I need a voice: please help me
Cuz my mommy can not hear
I need someone to defend me
Who listens with more then just their ears
