You never fit in.
You were never allowed too.
You learned, far too soon, that people like you weren't allowed to be small, unless you were also unseen.
Growing too fast makes your bones and soul ache.
But one day, you will be able to grow at your own pace.

Growth is fundamentally a game about hope. It's also a game about abuse; recovery from it; and being autistic and queer in a less than stellar environment.

CW's: ableism; ableist slurs; abuse; implied child sexual abuse; implied transphobia.
