All I wanted was okay

as a child, a teen, and an adult

All I want is okay

to smile, to laugh, and to live

And to be okay

No struggle, no strife, and no pain

But to live okay

No riches, no luxury, and no debt

But simply okay

In my mind, my heart, and my soul

last year, this year, next year

Just and only okay

Hopefully okay

...is that okay?
