WHAT I GOT



By Zoe H.

           
Most kids go to the mall and buy whatever they want 

But I'm over here happy with what I got

They can go into each store and buy what they want 

But I'm over here happy with what I got

They all say it's never enough that they need more and more of what they already got

But I'm over here happy with what I got

They lie

They cry

They complain 

Just to get what they want 

But I'm over here happy with what I got 

They flaunt and brag about everything they have 

And I am over here happy with what I got

  3. Can't remember the last time I said "I want" that wasn't tied to a real need. Guess that comes with age. That 13 year old is older and wiser than her years.

    1. Well beyond her years. Right now she is doing the cooking and cleaning as her mom is in a cast from her surgery. She is of good value.

  9. Such a great poem your young woman wrote. She knows who she is! Many adults don’t know that! Well done, Zoe.
