My mind feels
As though it
Flickers.
“Tick,
Tic,
Ti,
T.”

To experience ADD
is to have your brain
Switch between
Six different channels,
Six different themes.
It will always feel like you are
Rocketing between things.

In the span of a second,
Your mind will explore the dying children
In Mozambique.
In the next ponder,
Your mind indulges in the roleplay of
Naruto and the pink-haired chick.

I have no power over
Who dances in my play.
I know they bring flames,
But I’m uncertain as to
Who is managing the stage.
I am the director of this show, yet
I was banned to say.

The show has no ending, no beginning,
My life didn't come with instructions.
So I ****** it up and just lived with it.

In the moments that I daydream,
I always force myself to be in the present.
In fear that the world will think
I'm too dumb or complacent.
But that's just how my brain works.

Ten seconds gone,
I am travelling across the pool.
A red bruise on my lips and
A crack on my tooth.
I ask myself again,
Then and there,
How and when
Did I get this bruise?

It can be such a disadvantage,
It can be such a gift.
To be wholesome in a way,
But to also lack the basics.

I feel like I’m constantly living between
The two binary opposites.
As regulating emotions
can become a huge problem
I  may have creativity and the sway,
But I'm also managing my impulsivity every day.

Do you know
Why I zone out
And lose focus?
My world inside
Can just be too chaotic.
But trust that I'm working on it.

Regardless,
I know this faucet will flow seamlessly
And being more aware of this condition
Will only help me manage it.

So what have I to lose,
In the midst of this plight?
I’ve been writing a lot of poetry,
Haven’t I?

Need your hand ,
To rest on mine.
Cognizance limited,
Your desires not mine.
Is it certain,
Meagre is your intimacy?
If superfluous is your ardency ,
I'd vamoose unnoticed,
My heart schlep frenziedly.

Comes not from using domestic produce,
But such products help fiscal deficit reduce.

I wonder this, I wonder that…
Isn’t it all in all a wonder?
a marvel of the mind?
a marvel?
The world…
The world I wander,
not by foot but neurologics,
electronic pulse.
Tick tock.
I wander all night.
I wonder my life away.
Nomadic cognition,
Evasive mental technician,
she wonders away living.
She wanders away from life.
Escapist, flee the seen.
Searches for the unknown.
A scene of undefined frontier.

an unseen.

what we don’t know…
That’s the marvel.
But mostly the knowing are known.
However, I wonder.
