Fine - Poem by Juvela Obi

You ask me how I am
I say I'm fine
You nod like that's good
And move on

You don't understand
The difference
Fine is not okay
Okay is not quite good

It doesn't matter if
My life is crashing down
I will always be fine
Ask if I'm okay

Fine is what I say
When I don't trust you
Fine is what I am
When you don't care
For a detailed answer

You don't really want
Me to tell how I feel
You're just asking
Because it's polite

Fine is what I am
When I'm breathing
Fine is what I say
When I'm not dead
But that doesn't always
Mean I'm alive

So it doesn't matter if
My life is crashing down
I will always be fine
Ask if I'm okay

Okay is what I am
When I'm surviving
I have problems
But I'll deal with them

Okay is what I say
When I'm nervous
Or minorly unhappy
But at least I'm not bad

It doesn't matter if
My life is crashing down
I will always be fine
Ask if I'm okay
