Excerpt from “We are the Lost Girls” by C. J.
We are the Lost Girls.
The lost generation.
The girls they looked straight at but did not see,
The girls they missed,
The girls not diagnosed with Autism.
We are the girls who copied your words,
Copied your words so well you thought we knew what to say.
We are the girls who copied your actions,
Copied your actions so well you thought we knew what to do.
We never knew. We still don’t.
