He had issues in school
The teachers decided
That he might have
And possibly
Did you know
Most dyslexics
Start their own business?




Own man
His baseball team made it to state
Even for 7 year olds
That is impressive
He was first baseman
He got the most outs
In batting order he was usually 5th

But he doesn’t get to go

To state

With his team

To what he worked so hard for
At home he helped with chores
Though his room could never stay clean
An hour by himself
He could soil anything
Including his new church clothes
Which made it through one church service
Before getting a pizza stain

That shirt is still on the floor

I couldn’t clean it up

I haven’t even went into his room,

After the accident

I stare into his room

At all the clothes and empty chip bags

At the baseball and Pokémon cards

At his Star Wars bed spread

I stare into his room and relive

Him riding his bike

The car

And him

On the ground.

I don't know what happened that made it space out weirdly like that and I have zero ideas on how to fix it. I'm sorry if it makes it slightly confusing.
