Everyone Is Stunned By This Dyslexia Poem Written By A 10-Year-Old

"Made this grown man cry. I've read it over 20 times."

A 10-year-old who wrote a poem about dyslexia has stunned the internet with her words – and people are calling for her work to be published.

Teacher Jane Broadis said her Year 6 class were learning about poems that could be read both backwards and forwards to produce a different meaning.

They were all asked to write their own, and she was stunned by a pupil who chose to write about dyslexia.

“Please share,” Broadis tweeted. “I would love her work to be appreciated further afield. I wonder if it could even find a publisher?”

Broadis’ tweet had nearly 90,000 likes, and 27,000 retweets in a single day and people have been touched by the 10-year-old’s words.

Others are trying to help the teacher get the poem published.

Even kids’ presenters Dick and Dom have got involved:

The poem in full:


I am stupid.

Nobody would ever say

I have a talent for words

I was meant to be great.

That is wrong

I am a failure.

Nobody could ever convince me to think that

I can make it in life.
