Laid Back As Hell

It’s effortless to be laidback

Especially when nothing

No Words

No One

Can get in your mind to make you feel declined

It’s complicated

Especially, for a young male who is very dedicated

Didn’t care If someone made a mistake

Doesn’t change the fact,

That they turned out fake

Number one purpose is myself

My reputation

Easy for a high school boy to notice,

So when people turn fake

I was not mad

Definitely not sad

I was glad.

An important lesson taught

I felt

Careless and laidback

Myself and my mentality is what matters

Before and After

Must stay laidback.

    Dear Kevin, I like how you wrote this poem, it kinda made it seem like you was writing a rap song or something cause you rhymed a bit. Im glad that you don’t care about what others think of you and you don’t let anything get to you. Good job!

    Dear Kevin,
    I am glad that you are laidback and do not let the fake people get to you. Where it says “Myself and my mentality is what matters” really resonated to me because I agree with you that’s exactly how it has to be . So yea do ya thang kid.
