SYLLABLES

Being dyslexic,
Something's are hard for me.
Are there two syllables in syllable,
I think that they could be three;
I've settled for the two I can see.

Sometimes words are hard for me,
There hard understanding in entirety.
Not in saying but writing sometimes,
It drives me right out of the rhyme.

Words themselves don't frighten me,
I look at a word spelling forgotten.
There are worse things in life,
So I don't feel that rotten.

Though to play with a haiku,
To be able to write more than a few.
If there's one thing I love to do,
Playing with words is nothing too new.
