A Poem on ADHD

You are amazing. But many don’t understand the ADD/ADHD mind.
So you can tell them …
The ADD/ADHD mind is no more than this: A heroic soul born desperately in need of sensation.

To you … a moment is an eternity, a rule is a tyranny, a process is a purgatory, a joy is an ecstasy, a daydream is a vision, a hazard is a playground, silence is suffocation, and completion is death.

Add to this brutally expansive spirit the overwhelming need to risk, create, and express — so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or businesses or buildings or something of meaning, your very breath is cut off …

You must create, must pour out your entire being in creation.
By some strange, unknown, inward urgency you do not feel alive unless you are intimately involved in the risk of self-expression.

Thank you for having the courage to create.
For without your creationsthe world would grow dull and listlessAnd the rest of us who are like youwould not have your courageous act to lean onto inspire our own. –Pearl Buck
