Dyslexia

A curse or a blessing

Another way of looking at the world

Limitations within my world

 

In youth not a real problem but an excuse

No explanation of its truth

Little known then

School grades in the trash bin

 

My numbers didn’t roll

My sentences didn’t flow

No teachers involved

No help from others as I evolved

 

Within my mind all made sense

Numbers adding up

Sentences perfectly flowed from my lips

All of my visual information clicked

 

But when others got involved

Laughing at words misspelled

Sentences worded wrong that smelled

No one to understand as I tell

 

So forward alone I move

Developing a system only I knew

Double and triple checking my numbers to be true

Using a calculator to be correct not blue

 

Words today still look wrong

Even when others sing them in a song

Laid in type or script into the spell checker they go for a dip

Returning a correction so my grammar doesn’t slip

 

Still today I cannot write a short story or a book

My focus is out of sort

My words are flipped

Though I have the perfect thought in order

In my real world it rains chaos of shit

So today I write dyslexic poetry

Short as possible not to lose my point

Less words to invert

Less frustration so I don’t go berserk

 

So please keep in mind reading my dyslexic poetry

To you it might not make sense

Feel free to rearrange my words

Don’t complain you knew what I meant

 

So now my dyslexia temporarily fixed

Enter my world of A.D.D. another one of God’s gift

Now I am losing my focus

Inside my magical brain I say hocus pocus

Returning to my starting point again almost in focus
