"I'm just an ordinary everyday Mammy from Ireland and my son has ADHD
but has a lot of autistic tendencies.....he appears to be normal in the
physical sense but he finds life and school very hard. He was recently
the target of a group of bullies but one person in his class spoke up
for him......I wrote this poem from my sons heart. Only a mother knows
their childs heart and what they feel:
I wrote this for my son Jack who has recently been bullied but thanks
to one amazing young lad in his class who had the courage to stand up to
the bullies he has given Jack his life back:
One little voice Has changed my life One little voice Has given me a choice Shakespeare says Neither a borrower nor a lender be I say Neither be a bully nor bullied be I’m just a little boy Why can’t you see It’s not my fault I have ADHD You tease and taunt I grin and bear While I cry inside You pull my hair I only want to fit in I want to be accepted But all you do is leave me Feeling useless and dejected One little voice Has made me smile not mope He stood up for me And gave me back some hope That one little voice A classmate and a friend I will always be grateful Thomas Until the very end
I have since set up a group page called One Voice (on Facebook) but I have left the
page to my sons hero Thomas ORowe and another classmate to run the page.
They are 12 year old boys with so much wisdom they astound me.....I
don't expect you to go onto the page but it's a place where adults and
children with problems can talk to one another xxx"
