Don'T Worry - Poem by R.Benjamin Abate

Nothing is
Ever as
Good or as

Bad as it
Seems
To be

The mountains
Aren't too high
To climb

The sky
Isn't really
That blue

She's not
Really marrying
You for your personality

Your car won't
Start
But it will eventually

Money isn't as
Important as
Your kids

& The Teacher will
Smile at you after
You get the right answer

With that
Patronizing
Look on her face

That same look
Your mother gave you
When you first

Went to the bathroom
By
Yourself


Poet's Notes about The Poem

My father once told me, 'Nothing is ever as Good as it seems or as Bad as it seems.'

    Oh Ralph, oh Ralphy baby.....this poem is just superb! It made me laugh out loud for it's just the way I've felt at times but never expressed it. Well done! I had to swap girlfriend for boyfriend but now I'm being pedantic....take no notice of me, I'm just a passing poet, oh and thank you so much for reading my poem, Cinnamon Moon. (Report) Reply
