I was born with ADD
I got it from my father
I suppose he got it from his father.

One has to learn to

To pay attention
To the worl… Ooo a penny!

I have heard
People with ADD
Do crazy things like jump off trees

5.
I always seem to shake my leg
For no apparent reason
Maybe it’s my nerves…or my unwillingness to sit still

6.
The internet
Is one of the best ways
To lose track of time

And yet I still find myself
Clumsy…

My mother didn’t like that much.

9.
Sometimes
When I have something important to say
The thought runs away, leading me to forget.

10.
Randomness
Is the mysterious soul
Of ADD.

11.

In my mind
