Easy

How should I be?
Amazing, super,
wonderful and fine?

Has magic suddenly
taken me over
trasformed me
into a super Fairy,
all powerful,
and all immune?

I can say, fine, great,
I am wonderful.
but then that would be a lie.

Never in my life
have I been so encouraged
to pretend that truth
is not important.

Never have I felt
so disbelieved
by those around me.

Others feeling comfortable
with my answer is much more
paramount to good
conversation, and easy
human interaction.

I do wish it was
easy to lie for you,
but it is not.

None of this is easy.

    Humans are great at costuming reality…although from reading your tags, our pain is content different, yet I get what you are saying.I say stuff just to stay connected and it is often a lie. Your words are relevant and true in their simplicity. thanks

    Hi AnnaBeth… Thank you for sharing this. You are so right… It’s easier to say “I’m fine” and muster a smile than to tell people how you’re really feeling. I often think about how the phrase “how are you?” has become more of a greeting than a real question. Like something you say out of habit, but don’t really mean. It’s a sad truth today in the fast-food world of instant gratification, but what I wouldn’t give to slow things down… To go back to simpler times when conversation, not social networking, was the order of the day.

    Anyway, I don’t want to go off on a rambling tangent! Just wanted to say hello. I’ve been reading some of your other poems, and I look forward to seeing some new stuff, if and when you can post. Take care!

    Peace and light,
    Janine

      Thanks so much for the comment. I appreciate your take on it. I actually have quite a few things to get up here…..maybe this weekend. I just found your sight and am enjoying your work as well. I think in poetry. I think it is such a natural way to write. I keep trying to get my self to write something that might be more profitable, but I go back to it immediately. Oh well….I love it, and if I do what I love that is what is important. Take care and have a peaceful weekend.

      AnnaBeth
