Illiterate

.

I am a dunce

If you want to call it that

I cannot read or write

Why I have the dunce’s hat

.

I’m different, maybe

If you like

I’ll have to get through it

I’ll have to fight

.

Exams, well I failed

Highest I got was a C

Unfortunately it wasn’t enough

No qualifications for me

.

The day my son noticed

Mum read better than me

The day I revealed

This flaw I had in me

.

You see, I was not stupid, nor lazy

No, it wasn’t the case

But the kids would laugh

It was out of place

.

Dyslexia, disabilities,

Names that we hear

Spelling, grammar, hell

These are words that I fear

.

I may be different

It doesn’t mean I cannot succeed

I am proud to be me

Mark my words, take heed

.

My new books are available on Amazon

.

If you liked my work please share 😃 and make my day!
