She Said She Had Some Good News - Poem by Amanda Lukas
My mother once told me that
she had some good news for me.
you won't ever be
or the prettiest,
tallest (her wisest bet ever!)
or most popular person in the world, ' she said.
'Well what's the good news? '
won't ever be the dumbest,
or the ugliest,
or least popular one either.'
I suppose she was what you'd call a cynical optimist,
but she gave pretty good advise.
