ADHD POEM

Adhd is just a term
A description we use
Which raises concern
Its not who we are
Its a label we give
Should it determine
The way that we live?
Should it disable us
Or make us feel flawed
Or be an excuse
To close the door?
To make less effort
As we have something to blame
To cause trouble
Cos we aint the same..
If we can see
ADHD is a gift
If we can get underneath it
And give it a lift
Then it becomes
A source of power
An endless energy
For us to devour
Suddenly the world
Seems at your feet
When you turn a disability
Into somethin neat
So lets all celebrate
And take control
Lets be proud
And be lead by the soul.
