Understand Me

Copyright 5-12-2017

Steve Lake

 

Part dyslexic

Part A.D.D.

I don’t avow to the world

But a secret kept within me

 

From youth I rode upon trials and tribulations

Into adulthood my curse I carry with me

No one is the wiser about what ails me

Most just say I am misunderstood

 

I use no excuses

I focus twice as hard

I double check my numbers

Being careful before I discard

 

I grew into difference

Each with our own cross to bear

Others don’t understand me

Honestly I no longer care

 

I color my world in useless hues

Not stuck in a box like you and you

I walk a line curved like a snake

Some say pity

I say cup cake

 

My daily world may not stay in focus

Like a magic show with the distraction of hocus pocus

I am the rabbit pulled from the hat

Set free as a dove from a hidden crack

 

I count my years now

Scrambled and confused

In my old age

It’s simply my excuse

 

My mind also drifts

Marked as senile by age

What did you expect?

Eighty years my mind was locked in its cage

A lifetime spent misunderstood

On a beaten path I strayed through the woods

If I was to meet Alice in wonderland

I would sport my hat

Finally with her I am understood
