Are You Ok? - Poem by Hannah Torres

Are you ok?
A phrase said over and over again.
Words that I'm tired of hearing.
Questions that I'm tired of answering.
People that I'm tired of talking to.
What if I said no?
What would happen then?
I would only be telling the truth,
But do you really want to hear?
The truth never changes things.
You can't fix my brokeness.
You can fix my pain.
You can't stop the tears.
So why ask if I'm ok?
When it's not like you really care to know.
Don't pretend like I'm your friend.
Don't pretend that things can get better.
Don't pretend to listen when you ask if I'm ok.
No I'm not ok.
Is that ok with you?
Is that ok that I feel dead inside?
Is it ok that I don't want to live sometimes?
So no I am not ok and stop asking.

    What if I said no?
    Nothing will change but the person giving such reply will loose the opportunity of sharing his stress/strain/anxiety with some one who could have a remedy for overcoming/ diminishing it. Otherwise too, it's influence can get diluted by sharing. Thanks.10 points.
