Benjamin Giroux is a 10-year-old boy who has Asperger’s syndrome, which is a form of autism. He currently attends Cumberland Head Elementary School in Plattsburgh, New York.
According to his parents, he never talked much with them, especially when they ask him about school.
A week ago, his teacher asked everybody to write a poem about themselves and it must have sentences that begin with “I am”.
Benjamin came home and immediately started writing after sitting down at the dinner table. A few hours later, he showed the poem to his parents.
Read it below:
We typed out the entire poem for you in case you find it hard to read in the picture above.
Benjamin’s father, Sonny Giroux, said:
Benjamin was supposed to read his poem in front of his classmates the next day. But he was too nervous to go to school that day and ended up staying at home.
His father then decided to post the poem on Facebook with the hope of getting positive comments from the Internet. It quickly went viral and thousands of people have left comments saying they are inspired by it.
If you are touched by Benjamin’s poem, share it with your friends and family. Don’t forget to leave a nice comment for him!
