BEFORE I KNEW I COULD FAIL...

THOUGHTS of THE BOY with Dyslexia

What a guy I am

Full of vigor, so please ignore the spam

I can throw a football and get a grand slam

Before I knew I could fail, I was THE MAN

I did glide through life, before the "in" thing became school

Which rallied for aleph bais,and I became the fool

Although I'd rather forget that moment in time

When it was all about sounds and how they rhyme

But here's what happens when it's Kriah time

My voice doesn't respond, feeling like I've committed a crime

I knew the sounds just minutes ago

Why can't I just act like I know?

Why do I freeze and try to please?

Instead, I should just fake it, say excuse me, and sneeze

I had it all planned out last night

When my stomach twisted with a knot of fright

I was so sure, finding a trick for each sound

And rehearsed in my head a way to astound

So why do I always lose the fight?

and why am I missing this basic right?

As something makes me act different in the spotlight

Even though I practice at night

And why don't my parents make it ALL RIGHT?

IF THEY COULD!
