Wonder - Poem by maria goodison

All under the covers, safe and sound
I started to wonder at it all.

All the things we say and do,
all the looks we give the world,
all the passing smiles just to say 'it's ok'.
I've tried my best to understand,
to stop that hammer from hitting the ground.

All cuddled up safe in a ball,
I thought like I have never before
and still finding my feet,
I'm still wondering at it all.
