10-Year-Old Writes Backwards Poem And It's Eye-Opening

10-Year-Old Writes Backwards Poem And It's Eye-Opening
A poem written by a 10-year-old with dyslexia is currently going viral for its eye-opening double meaning.

Jane Broadis took to Twitter recently to share a poem written by one of her pupils after she was “stunned” by it.
 
The teacher wrote that she would love the young pupil’s work to be “appreciated further afield” and would even like it to be published.
 
“Today in Y6 we looked at poems that could be read forwards & backwards. I was stunned by this one written by one of my 10-year-olds,” she wrote.
 
“Please share – I would love her work to be appreciated further afield. I wonder if it could even find a publisher?”
When you initially read the poem, it’s hard to ignore the negative, self-deprecating tone running throughout as the writer talks about her dyslexia.
 
However, it’s only when you get to the end you realise there is so much more to the poem than you may have initially thought.
 
The poem is being praised by people who are also dyslexic, while Jane herself is being applauded for being such a great teacher.
