I was diagnosed with ADD when I was in the second grade and as I've gotten older I've been able to identify with it more in my own mind and come to terms with how it works and alters my thoughts. The thought processes involved with it have inspired this poem.

Thoughts of things tread racing through my mind
Always stopping to look around
Pausing to gaze at the things they find
Only to forget what they've found

What they've been seeking is lost to time
The legends fade with last laughs spent
Only retained by these words that ryhme
Long overdue like last months rent

But these words alone cannot contain
Alas they are but bunched letters
The thoughts like water through them do drain
Like feet that can't afford fetters

What is to be done with these thoughts undedicated
Hard to tell with a mind best left unmedicated
