Being autistic, Benjamin has always felt ‘different’ when compared to his peers.
While he wishes he could be treated the same as everyone else, he understands his autism makes him different. So, in his poem "I AM" he does his level best to let people know what it is to be him!
#2 THE LETTER!
In his assignment, Benjamin writes "I feel like a boy in outer space / I touch the stars and feel out of place" or “I say I 'feel like a castaway' / I dream of a day that thats okay."
When his father Sonny read it, he was overcome with emotions, and it’s easy to see why.

The poem has gone viral on the Internet since it was first posted. The National Autism Association highlighted Benjamin’s poem and shared it with all of its followers.
