Description

This is a song I wrote titled “Red.” It is about self-acceptance and finding empowerment through community, specifically how I found self-acceptance and empowerment through the autistic community. The song title and references to “wearing red” throughout the song are an homage to how the #actuallyautistic community and allies use the color red in the month of April to represent autism acceptance. I added my illustration of a butterfly at the end to symbolize the growth and positive transformation I have experienced since becoming involved in autistic self-advocacy. Full song lyrics: When I was young the stars in my eyes loooked up at the stars in the sky Little children know things grown up people don’t Remember, what was that like When we wore red For the fire, and the passion and the courage We turned our heads From the liars who say that we’re worthless And we wore red The color of our beating hearts Of our bleeeing hearts unchained And we wore red The color of the love flowing through our veins They say minds like mine just don’t make sense Hazy fog is all they ever saw I know that if you look close at hidden places You will find smiling faces where We wear red For the fire, and the passion and the courage We turn our heads From the liars who say that we’re worthless And we wear red The color of our beating hearts Of our bleeeing hearts unchained And we wear red The color of the love flowing through our veins
