I Never Gave Up

Assignments that seem like few papers to some

Are mountainous to me.

 I attempt to focus,

Yet I realize

 my attention is lost. 

The unfair standards cause unnecessary stress. 

I am concerned about experiencing

 retribution.

Teachers are aware of 

my disability, But are 

incapable

 Of supplying additional help.

I try teaching myself; most of the time I fail,

But I never give up. My 

ambition 

was to graduate with my class. 

My teacher sat down with me 

And read for hours.

It was difficult, But eventually I was reading words. 

If it was not for that teacher, 

 

p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000}
p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000; min-height: 15.0px}
span.s1 {font-kerning: none}

I would have never become the author I am.
