I AM FINE, THANK YOU

Poetry Apr 18, 2020

How are you?
I am fine, thank you.
Nope I am broken here
Acting tough is my cover
To hide the anger, rage and tears
The fragile latent layer
Yet how are you?
I am fine, thank you.

You should know better
Than to tell the truth
Showing scars is no trend setter
The bitter is the better
Yet how are you?
I am fine, thank you.

Does it hurt? Yes.
Do we tell? No.
Because that's how I have been taught
Emotions facing the drought
Yet how are you?
I am fine, thank you.

No I am not fine
I am bleeding pain
The silence of tears and cries
The lonely walk in rain
Yet how are you?
I will say I am fine, thank you.
Even when I am not
Because that's how I have been taught.
