Closed on the outside, open on the inside. That’s how I would describe myself living with autism. I am 23 years old and my name is Russell Lehmann. Throughout my whole life I have walked the long, lonely roads and have struggled to come out of many valleys.
I have also had some triumphs, and poetry is one of them. I have written many poems that range from the mental and emotional struggles that are destined in life, my own personal hardships, the beauty and nature of the earth, and so on.
