A Poem: As Good As It Gets

As Good As It Gets

by Myesha D. Jenkins ©

 

Woke up this morning to his surprise

This constant thought bombarding his mind.

As good as it gets, your life, this is as good as it gets.

 

A yawn. A scowl. A growl.

Disbelief. Suspicion. Rejection.

 

There is health, love, freedom, and sanity.

But throngs of people need to want to know me!

I’m witty. I’m different. I’m special. You see?

 

Drip. Drop. Drip.

Sizzle. Fizzle. Sizzle.

 

He might be witty, different, and special for sure…

But the thought is a voice now for him to endure.

Clearer, strangely dearer

It now sits and sings…

As good as it gets, your life, this is as good as it gets.
