"Me and My ADHD"
Poem submitted by Anna Johnson to honestlyadhd.com
Thanks for being there for me, when I can't shut off my mind.
When the world is still and silent, my thoughts are not confined.
Thanks for keeping me company, as the moon shifts into sun.
Showing me the world anew, a journey just begun.
You're the spark within my mind, that's never really gone.
Turning simple thoughts into an endless marathon.
Thanks for being my dance partner, when the world is still.
Your rhythm is unending, a constant test of will.
Thanks for showing me the world in a kaleidoscope of thought.
Your whispers a relentless tide, a battle always fought.
Thanks for making me feel alive, even when it's rough.
With you by my side, I've learned I must be tough.
Thanks for pushing me to do more, reminding me of my might.
Even when the world is still, you and I soar in flight.
You never let a moment pass, without a flurry of ideas and schemes.
Thanks for all the restless nights, filled with crazy dreams.
Thanks for showing me the world, in a very different light.
Every detail amplified, every color bright.
You're there in every laughter, and in every little cheer.
You're there when I'm at my worst, a constant whisper in my ear.
You've been with me through it all, for better or for worse.
I accept you are a part of me; together, we traverse.
As I learn more about you on this roller coaster ride,
I've come to understand that I must take my life in stride.
Every moment is a challenge, yet a chance to truly live.
And that's a journey, to myself, I'm willing to give.

A flash of inspiration, then it's gone; Lost in the crowd, but the show goes on. In every moment, a different song; With ADHD, the days are long.
The world in colors bold and bright; Each moment a battle, each day a fight. But in this chaos, I find my light; With ADHD, I take flight.
"In Every Moment"
Poem submitted by anonymous to honestlyadhd.com
An engine of ideas, never at rest, Each thought a bird, fleeing from its nest, In the realm of constant change, I jest, ADHD, the unwelcome guest.
A mind that races, swift and free, Across the landscapes of the sea, And through the canyons of decree, ADHD, it's part of me.
Tumbled thoughts in disarray, In the chaos, I find my way, A unique path, come what may, ADHD, in colors gray.
Like a symphony that's never done, Notes scattered beneath the sun, Yet from the discord, harmony spun, ADHD, the unsung one.
From distractions, insights bloom, In the cacophony, I find room, To live, to laugh, to loom, ADHD, in life's grand plume.
