The Easiest Lie

It’s a conversation heard almost every day:

“Hello! How are you?”

“I’m good; how are you?”

“Good.”

and some days we don’t even think about it.

We just say it like it’s obvious

and couldn’t be any different,

but I wonder…

how many people when they say it

actually mean it?

Because I can say,

“I’m good,”

and maybe you’ll believe it

but I can’t.
