Sometimes I dabble in shit other than just my usual rants, like poetry. Today I’m going to share a piece I wrote after a very long frustrating day with my second youngest son.
See before he was diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, expressive and receptive delays along with educational delays it was a daily fucking horror. The tantrums, the screaming, the fighting, the yelling, oh man the list goes on. Now with his current medication and a lot of supports he is not such a handful, most times anyway.
I wrote this before his diagnosis and supports, it is just a small taste of the struggles I have had with him and how I feel why he did it at the time.
Inside Of Me
I have things I want to say
I just don’t know the right way
So I decide to kick and scream
Throwing things into a stream
I have things that I want told
I just don’t know how to be bold
So I decide to punch and bite
Causing people such a fright
I have things that I want heard
I just don’t know the right words
So I decide to fall right down
Not caring who may be around
You see there’s trouble brewing inside
Hidden away in my brain’s vibes
I just want to ask for drink or food
I promise that’s it and I’ll be good
I just want to play with others too
I promise that’s it and it’s true
I just want to fit right in
I promise that’s it and you’ll win
I just want to be like you
I promise then I’ll say I love you
