A teacher has shared a heartwarming poem one of her students wrote about her dyslexia. 

Writing on Twitter, the teacher said "today in year 6 we looked at poems that could be read forwards & backwards."

"I was stunned by this one written by one of my 10 year olds. Please share - I would love her work to be appreciated further afield. I wonder if it could even find a publisher?"

The full poem (which can be read both forwards and backwards) reads...

I am stupid

Nobody would ever say

I have a talent for words


I was meant to be great

That is wrong

I am a failure


Nobody could ever convince me to think that

I can make it in life

The teacher certainly got her wish - as the poem has been shared and liked hundreds of thousands of times. This young girl is certainly wise beyond her years.
