My A.D.D.

Copyright 6-4-2017

Steve Lake

 

 

In my youth

No excuses made

If you had difference

You would turn it about into an advantage that pays

 

My mind would travel

Six directions at a time

Other people would say focus

I would laugh and cry

 

It took a while to conquer

A weakness turned into strength

When others could only do one job at a time

I laughed thinking they were weak

 

Yes school was a problem

They couldn’t catch up to my mind

They would scream focus

I would scream why?

 

In age I entered the work force

Here is where my advantage would pay

What they thought was a productive employee

I would show them a new way

 

I advanced through the levels

My one year to their five

Then I got a manager

He knew I suffered inside

 

One day he laid upon me a list

Six task but short of time

I smiled when my mind ingested

Saying I will be back in a dime

 

Upon the completion of these tasks

I returned to no surprise

He was drawing a rose, talking on the phone and rearranging his desk

You may ask why?

Those alike gather

Within themselves in others they recognize

He also was A.D.D.

He knew my mind was spry

 

He was older and wiser

Already walking a mile in my shoes

Giving me one task would cause my mind to stray

It always did better with two

 

He taught me a lot in silence

Never did he judge

He just gave me list with multiple tasks

It was the challenge that I loved

 

So upon a day full of task

I added one more to the list

I stopped by his office

I just asked him what gives

 

He explained that others around him

Could only focus on one task

So he needed me more

Because I could multi task so fast

 

A lifetime friendship was made that day

But we don’t often talk

Neither one of us can focus

In two directions we are off

 

In age of five decades now past

My body slows but my mind is still fast

I reflect upon my younger days

Those that preached to me to focus

My pants are drawn so they can kiss my ass

 

I am sure at the last moment of my last breath

Just before my body takes its final rest

My mind to settle its final task

No not to focus

But to do one more

Multi task my memories

My actions

My sins

My deeds

My short comings

My family

My values

My differences

My choices

My beliefs

My morals

And my love of God

And to finally let my mind rest

 

Oh yeah

To re-check my funeral arrangements

My music

My pictures

My chapel seating

My flowers

My after party food and drink

And to rest in peace at last
