The employment costs of autism

Include the husband’s schism…

Away from that home

Leaving wife all alone

To make it without his decision.

The mother scarcely provides

Enough so the children survive…

As for she,


As in battle doth thrive!

To many mothers are rattled,

By sickness that they’ve battled…

At work or home

They’re never alone,

Night times are just as addled.

Many autistic children wander

At night or day out yonder…

Parents rarely know

When the kids will go,

A frightening thought to ponder!

Employers taking notice

Have started form justified motives…

To find ways

For employee’s days,

With autistic  kids  to be work-devoted.

The radio program on WTAG,

Out of Worcester, Mass., clearly

Mentioned resources

And other courses,

To find support for thee.


On this date, the program to know…

Check it out on the Web–

Mom’s soul needs be fed–

Her emotional gas tank is dangerously low!

–Jonathan Caswell

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and strength...to love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in it...as hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
