Blogger Widgets Ender-Chan's Thoughts: Take It

Take It

So you want to be gifted? Please, take it.
Take my talents.
Take the words that flow from my fingers.
Take my ability to acquire languages.
Take the nuances I notice in various words.
Take it.
Take it all.
Take my self-awareness,
The feeling that I'm not really that smart
And that I need to do more.
Take my anxiety
And the feelings I take on
From collectives.
Take my view of the human race
How we're nothing but selfish
With none but our own interests.
Take the feeling of wanting to do something
But having not the power or means to do anything.
Take everything.
Take it. You wanted it.
Because I don't anymore.

    Question. Did you write this? Are these your words, your thoughts, your emotions, your feelings, Friend? Because, I am going to assume that you did, indeed, write this. First off, I do not know what it is like to be in your shoes. Alright.... ;)
    "The feeling that I'm not really that smart." Yes, you are!! You're smart.... You're intelligent.... You're brilliant!! You have amazing abilities, gifts, talents.... That will, has--and already does--leave an impact on people's Lives!! You have incredible abilities, gifts, talents.... That will, has--and already does--give you a place in this world!! You are way smarter than I will ever be!! I do mean that!! And in the best way possible, Friend!! You do a lot.... For the autism community, for the "special needs" community, for equality and anti-bullying, for society.... ;-D
    If you were to look the word "gifted" up in a dictionary, its definition would say this.... "having great natural ability". Alright? I have Attention Deficit Disorder. Thanks to my A.D.D? I can turn a mental "switch" off, if you will, within my head and block things out. During Life's negative situations? I transport myself to "La-La Land". I can mentally run from everything--because I think this is my coping mechanism--I block everything out. I hip sway/dance/cut loose as Bruce Springsteen takes me away with his brilliant poetry!! Having A.D.D.... It is my superpower!! Guess what? You have your own unique superpowers, as well!! ;)
    "Take my ability to acquire languages." Wait. What?! You have the ability to acquire languages?! That could come in handy someday!! Whether you are at work and dealing with somebody who cannot speak English, but you're fluent in their native language....? Or.... What if you travel outside America....? Jealous!! ;-D
    Isn't everyone gifted in his or her own unique way? ;)

    PS. Sorry, long comment!! This is why I cannot do Twitter!! Ha!! ;-D

    1. Well, I'm going to Iceland next year because the band got invited! I can acquire languages relatively easily, but it takes time and effort as does honing any skill.

    2. Anna....
      You are flying to Iceland next year?! Cool!! True, honing any skill does require time and effort.... For everyone!! ;)
