Support Worker

He grabs my wrist
And won’t let go
He is frustrated and upset
Though can’t explain why
He has no words
He wants me to help him
He trusts me
I think I am like a mother figure
Since he moved away from home
I don’t get upset
When he grabs my wrist
Or follows me around
As I know he trusts me
And I will be able to find out why he is upset and help him
Though my aim is to help him become more independent
And help him use his words
To voice his views to everyone
As he has that right
For now I am his voice
Meeting with other professionals
With ideas and suggestions
On how he can live
A happy and independent life
While I research every communication app possible to help him
He has no words
He grabs my wrist
