Walk with me

I do not know who to credit this to! I would love to. It was sent to me anonymously.

Take my hand and come with me

I want to teach you about ADHD

I need you to know, I want to explain,

I have a very different brain

Sights sounds and thoughts collide

What to do first? I can’t decide

Please understand I’m not to blame

I just can’t process things the same

Take my hand and walk with me

Let me show you about ADHD

I try to behave, I want to be good

But I sometimes forget to do as I should

Walk with me and wear my shoes

You’ll see its not the way I’d choose

I do know what I’m supposed to do

But my brain is slow getting the message through

Take my hand and talk with me

I want to tell you about ADHD

I rarely think before I talk

I often run when I should walk

It’s hard to get my school work done

My thoughts are outside having fun

I never know just where to start

I think with my feelings and see with my heart

Take my hand and stand by me

I need you to know about ADHD

It’s hard to explain but I want you to know

I can’t help letting my feelings show

Sometimes I’m angry, jealous or sad

I feel overwhelmed, frustrated and mad

I can’t concentrate and I lose all my stuff

I try really hard but it’s never enough

Take my hand and learn with me

We need to know more about ADHD

I worry a lot about getting things wrong

everything I do takes twice as long

everyday is exhausting for me

Looking through the fog of ADHD

I’m often so misunderstood

I would change in a heartbeat if I could

Take my hand and listen to me

I want to share a secret about ADHD

I want you to know there is more to me

I’m not defined by it you see

I’m sensitive, kind and lots of fun

I’m blamed for things I haven’t done

I’m the loyalist friend you’ll ever know

I just need a chance to let it show

Take my hand and look at me

Just forget about the ADHD

I have real feelings just like you

The love in my heart is just as true

I may have a brain that can never rest

But please understand I’m trying my best

I want you to know, I need you to see

I’m more than the label, I am still me!!!!
