How’s you?

I wanted to say broken

but you wouldn’t understand.

I wanted to say lonely

no ones there to hold my hand.

I wanted to say so much

but, there are so few I trust.

So I did the best I could

and simply said,

‘Hey, i’m good’.

  1. Your poem addresses my own thoughts on the subject, and bring to mind my own answer when asked that question. I usually answer Okay, But I like the sound of ‘I’m good’ and think I will use it the next time I’m asked that question. Loved your poem


    1. Hi, sorry it took so long to reply, life got busy when I wasn’t looking! I’m glad you liked the poem, and hope you’ve made good use off ‘i’m good.’ Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment.


      1. That’s okay, I understand, our life can get busy sometimes, mine did too, I didn’t even notice that you didn’t reply to my comment 🙂
