Hello, New World!

The day I lost my very first tooth,

Was halfway through grade four,

I’d run my tongue along the gap,

Where my tooth had been before,

I remember I went home crying,

And showed it to my mum,

She told me that a brand new tooth,

Would grow up in my gum,

In a while the gap would stop feeling strange,

I wouldn’t notice the tooth was gone,

The only reason I missed it now,

Was because it was there for so long,

Then slowly but surely over the weeks,

In the gap a new tooth grew,

And now it makes me wonder,

If people are like teeth too.
