I am Johm: A Poem by My Only Son

My only son, who is now in Grade 6, just composed a poem to be submitted to his teacher tomorrow. I am amazed when I read it and feel the so-called mother’s pride. To document his output, here it is.


I am the only son and the second child of three

I wonder how we all got this far

I hear noises

I see myself as someone else

I want good things to happen

I am industrious and I do household chores


I pretend to stay calm

I feel inspired

I touch my heart

I worry for my parents

I cry when I can’t take it anymore

I am easily bored so I am a busy-body


I understand myself

I say “just do it” to motivate myself

I dream of cool things

I try things that are new sometimes

I hope for second chances

I am a happy child and a prayerful one
