The Silent Rage of a Dyslexic


You cannot hear my silent rage
It creeps in at an early age
The hidden silence and the hidden shame
I cannot read I am not the same
I thought that I would always soar
To reach the stars and wanting more
I know not why I cannot see
Those words that twist play games on me
Is it Fate I need to know
That I fail to read and fail to grow
This inner rage that overwhelms
The urge to learn is at the helm
In this silent rage I must proclaim
I cannot read they can not tame
