Just Because I’m (I’ve got)… Don’t Mean (I’m)…

Just because I’m labeled with ADHD

Don’t mean I’m constantly hyper

Just because I’ve got learning disabilities

Don’t mean you can call me mean names

Just because I have NVLD

Don’t mean you can call me inferior to you

Just because I’m different

Don’t mean I’m not good at school

Just because I’m all these things

Don’t mean I’m intelligent.
