More Poetry - About Children With Dyslexia - In A Poem
She Wishes She Could Read

This poem is written for day five in the National Poetry challenge for 2012.
Dyslexia is a learning disability in the area of reading. Children who are dyslexic sometimes say that the words spin or bounce or jump off the page. Through learning strategies and lots of practice, children who are dyslexic can become good readers.
When she reads
The words get twisted
She tries to spell the word
Only to find she missed it
She struggles with her studies
Always feels a little sad
When the words spin on the paper
It makes her a little sad
She wants to be a reader
In just the worst way
She evens studies after school
When all her friends go out to play
Just once she wants an “A”
On her report card
She wants to prove to the world
That she really studies hard
But once again at the end of the quarter
She sees the great big “C”
She watched the kids at the Honor Roll Party
Quietly says “I wish it were me…”
