Must doo mi bessed

I’ve always found writing easy but it’s not the case for everyone. 1e84c3e64e4ccbb593bc099365bfe836_teacher-reading-to-class-clipart-panda-free-clipart-images-boy-writing-letter-clipart_350-293


Wunce there wuz a littel boy,                 

he fownd it hard to spell.

Wurds and letrs jumbilled up

and it was difecult to tell


wat a sentins ment

and how the commas wurked.

It left him feeln down

as feer inside him lurked.


Instead of luking forwurd

to advensures with a pen

he preferd anything else

than spelling tests again.


Eetch day a little darkr

his sunnee wurld becayme.

Mum and dad were sad

because himself he blamed.


‘Dad, I must be sillee.

I can hardly reed.

My scors and tests ar rubish…

wat is rong with me?


Evrybody in my class

is doin raylee well

and I’m in the bottom haf

I cannot seem to spell.’


‘Well that just issint tru,’

his mum did swiftly say.

Children lurn at difrent speeds

but each lurns evry day.


OK you’ve maid a fyue mistakes

but that is NOT the plan.

Let’s ignore wat you kant

and check out wat you CAN!’


His littel face brightly shone.

‘I think aisle be alrite.’

And picking up his pen

he again began to right.


In the days that followed

with help from mum and dad

the wee lad’s courage grew

and lots of fun he had


geting lost in pyrit books

and writing just for fun,

imaginashin and a pen

sure nothing can’t be done!


Life is NOT perfection.

It’s not all tests and cups.

Life is doing yur best

and NEVER givving up.
