Please Just Let Me Fidget

fidget

Please just let me fidget

It’s what I need to do

Please let me move silently

It’s more for me than you

It might seem odd for many

who don’t understand at all

that this need to move and fidget

is like an ever rolling ball.

You see, like gravity and motion

and magnets that attract

my need to move and fidget

are simply matter of fact.

It’s not that I’m being ‘naughty’

or ‘disobedient’ to you

It’s that my need to move at times

is what I need to do.

At times it helps me focus

At times it helps me stay

in the spot that you have asked me to

and for this I must obey.

You think because there are others

who can easily sit so still

and who have no need to fidget

therefore I must also fit the bill.

But this is simply not the case

and for this it’s time to spill

as there are many of us in this boat

who simply can’t sit still.

So please just let me fidget

I’m not hurting anyone

Please let me sit here quietly

Until this time is done.

And for every time you catch me

sitting here fidgeting

know that this is how it is for me

that you are witnessing.

So please just let me fidget

It’s what I need to do

I hope that by sharing this now

some too will have a clue.
