Along Came Archie



I have an extra chromosome
And I am quite sure
It's just part of who I am
And no, I do not need a cure


You don't have to be afraid of me
No need to look away
Just talk to me and you will find
That I have lots to say


When I speak you might not understand
But my laughter says it all
When I run I'm a bit clumsy
And often times I fall


I may not be as fast as you
I go at my own pace
And that's okay cause we should know
That life is not a race


And it's a misconception 
That I'm happy all the time
I get mad, and sad, and grumpy
And mom says I often whine


My eyes they're shaped like almonds
When I smile they disappear
But with them I still see you
Just like with my ears I hear


Sometimes people point and stare 
Sometimes they make fun
And I know that I am different 
But I'm not the only one


None of us are just the same
How boring would it be
If the world was filled with people
Just the same as you or me






Lots of Love!
