Emotions Series 2 • Acrylic on canvas • 91.5 cm x 60 cm • 2021 • by artjamila
The grand cup of emotions,
Interesting in their merriments,
And unique in their challenges.
Behavioural, sensory, communication,
The many actions to question,
But never for detestation.
Mysterious in their own way,
But never unsightly,
They are their own personality,
And never our enemy.
As our friends,
Autistic people are various,
But never less.
Autistic people feel a range of emotions from happiness, shock, sadness and many more. However, they tend to feel it in a deeper, more intense way than we do. They are more sensitive and aware of their environment due to their deep connection to their senses, which shows that they feel the same things we feel, but with more intensity– making them unique but never less.
