Poems by Scott Lentine

All Aboard The Arc! Anthem

Breaking down barriers
Opening up doors
Letting every individual’s opportunities soar
This is what All Aboard The Arc stands for

Changing norms that is the goal
Making sure society does not leave us out in the cold
Struggling every day to gain equal rights
Obtaining this vision through passion and might

I’m taking this journey with you
I want to be a member of your crew
I am pleased that my ideas have gained a new world view
Together we can see our dreams come true

We are here at All Aboard The Arc! on the 18th of May
Your participation helped make this a bright day
You can see individuals demonstrate their true abilities
All in part for a great charity.

 

The Ode to the Autistic Man
Try to understand the challenges that I face
I would like to be accepted as a human in all places
Where I will end up in life I don’t know
But I hope to be successful wherever I go
I would like to expand my social skills in life
Making new friends would be very nice

Stand proud for the autistic man
For he will find a new fan
I hope to overcome the odds I face today
Increased acceptance will lead me to a brighter day

By the age of 20, I will have made tremendous strides
I know in the future, life will continue to be an interesting ride
I have made new friends by the year
I will be given tremendous respect by my family and peers
I hope to get noted for bringing the issue of autism to the common man
So that autistic people can be accepted in this great land

Stand proud for the autistic man
For he will find a new fan
I hope to overcome the odds I face today
Increased acceptance will lead me to a brighter day

 

Scott Lentine will have two other poems and an interview featured in an upcoming edition of the Advocate.
