Cerebral Noise

I wrote this poem last night after thinking deeply about a world where people with ADHD are free to be true to themselves and don’t have to mask – the last stanza shows this!

I hope you enjoy my positivity regarding ADHD – I really am passionate about helping people!

Ideas flood my senses
destroying logic in ephemeral
of rainbow fantasy
glorious reality


it’s all lost within a daydream
or a nightmare
which occurs on
an overcast day
The sky is stained a
pavement grey
and dreams are lost
among the gloom


from a neural

Awake inside
Asleep in sight

her speckled stars
ignite a night
of ribboned joy

Amongst the galaxies
she flies
Her wings spread out to
touch a sky
which has no ceiling
but forces meaning

into cluttered sentence
Tired full stop

She never dares to
in case her
greatest fear
becomes reality
and she questions her


Her moan escapes a lung


just as if time stopped
and re-begun
she weaves a portrait
in the void

A vibrant

of a time
all together
orb and line
unites under
a purple moon
without the semantic
or paint of gloom
or time too soon

It’s always now
as she writes her
last word
and the

Logic crumbles
Numbers melt
Humans gather
For the future!

Hello, I’m Annabel and my mind is like a galaxy. Diagnosed with ADHD during lockdown, since then I have made it my mission to inspire other ADHDers to see the positives of living with a ‘galaxy brain’ and educate people about what it is like living with ADHD. I run my own tutoring and coaching business, helping many children with ADHD and dyslexia, and have always been an avid amateur writer and artist. Recently, I have written a children’s book which highlights the positives of ADHD: ‘Hadie & Adah’ and I will continue to promote my drawings and blog posts – focusing on positivity and creativity – in future. I truly am proud of my galaxy mind!
