Fidgets Perspective

Fidgets Perspective

by Alienhippy

I wish I had an off switch, because I wear my batteries out

The constant nagging in my head, the questions of self-doubt

Yes….If I could push my brain button, and turn off the thoughts in there

I might keep still for long enough, I’d no-longer cause despair

Maybe….If I had a standby, just like on my TV

Then I could finish off the jobs that are assigned to me

Yep, I could put myself on standby, and not keep going “BERSERK”

The running round and balancing, my busy brain at work

My body would stop for long enough, for me to think of less

I’d sit and talk to those around, not make a constant mess

So….If I could turn my brain off, or just slow it down a bit

I wouldn’t have to hang upside down, I’d very likely sit

I’d sit without the tapping, the rocking and the shaking

I’d stop myself from jumping, spinning, climbing, faking

I wouldn’t have to try so hard, to make people understand

They’d accept me if I just kept still….But, on the other hand

I wouldn’t have the constant flow of creative energy

I wouldn’t dance with happiness, when I am feeling free

I wouldn’t be the same person, who I think is quite cool

In fact….I think to turn me off, is really rather cruel

So if you get to know me, you will see I cannot quit

I guess I have to just own up, “I LOVE BEING A FIDGET!”

  1. Lees, I love the ending of this poem. As I was reading it I was thinking, “Yes, yes, I wish I could turn my brain off too”, but then when I read the rest of it I smiled. You are right, we just have to own it. Huh?
    “I LOVE BEING A FIDGET!” (too)

    And I love you lovely fidget! Hee hee

    • I love you too fidget Angel,
      It would be nice sometimes to be able to switch it off.
      Especially when going into meltdown/shutdown.
      But….as we both know, my lovely friend,
      we learn our greatest lessons when we listen through the loops.
      Smiling at you….keep being you!!! xxx 🙂
