Good Enough - Poem by Brooklyn Sorrow

I guess I should move on,
For it would be right.
I really can't keep these memories.
For they keep me up at night.

These horrific dreams.
And my piercing screams,
Are nothing more than a reminder,
Of what I loved.

My life is good enough.
It's good how it is.
Please let's keep it this way.
So I can live through each day.

Don't say those names.
This isn't just some fun game.

Playing around.

That is mean.

My life is good.
I am good where I am.
I can't die.
I'm too young.

No more suicide.
It's tearing at my will.
No more murder.
I don't like to kill.

I'm good.
Good Enough.

I'm staying alive for you.
That should be good enough.

    Hi Brooke - This is really really great - good structure and an element of rhyme which improves the flow and makes it easier to recite. V 1 2 & 3 Are a RESOLUTION 'I guess I should move on - Nothing more than a reminder - My life is good enough' V 4 5 & 6 Are a REBUKE 'Don't say those names - This is mean'. V 7 8 & 9 Ae a RESOLVE 'No more suicide - I'm staying alive for you - That should be good enough'. I'm glad about that Brooke we'd hate to lose you! I score it a TEN. love you in Poetry - JOHN.
