I'M Good (I Think...) - Poem by Lara W.A

I’m good,
I’m good,
I’m singing happy songs
Wearing flashy clothing
I’m good
I’m so good.

I think I’m good
My plastic smile –
It never leaves my side.
I call mum ‘Mamma Mia’
My life’s brilliant
Haze or without haze
I’m good.

My piano teacher,
She asked me last night:
“Which song did we do last week? ”
I told her:
“Excuse me? ”
“You know ‘Tomorrow’, The Beatles.”
“You mean, ‘Yesterday’? ”
“Oh yea, that.”
We laughed till our tummy ached.
I’m good,
Life's a piece of cake.

I woke up at 1 today
Another solitary Saturday;
Nobody’s home
Papa’s gone out golfing
Everybody’s busy keeping up
With the trend.
Nobody called,
Or dropped by to say ‘Hello’
But that’s okay,
I don’t need them anyway,
Yah I’m good,
I can survive on my own.

My maid,
She cooked me an awesome meal.
And yeah
A second ago,
I received a text message
It said: “I miss you”.
I looked out the window
To see little boys and girls
Eating ice-cream,
Holding hands;
No frowns on their faces.
I’m good
Even though
Tears are starting
To break free,
I’m good.

    I like your attempt at self reassurance. I like the way the speaker in your poem tries to keep a grip on knwing her/himself. Thanks for the read. (Report) Reply
