Your Fine Your Okay - Poem by nayeli contreras

today another scary day
cannot laugh cannot say
im fine truly fine
people ask 'are you okay? '
dude relax whats up with you today?
im fine im truly fine
walk down the hall way tipsy, full of tears
when i get home they smile, why do you look so gray?
im fine im okay
today school didnt call home but what will happen tomorrow?
they wont smile they will look down faces full of shame
still fine truly fine
i didn't really do anything all i did was not speak
after a long time not caught and finally happy, upbeat
i was fine truly fine
can i hide it? its it fake? do you even know?
i can escape, what if i stay, will i fall again?
still fine truly fine
take deep breaths and walk straight
wipe the tears dust the slate
not fine not truly fine
fall to the ground cant get up you see
too many drugs too many pains
not fine never will be okay
try to scream 'someone help! ' head light as air
why did i do this? what do i care?
will i hear a voice say'you'll be fine, your okay? '
i hear sierns i need peace, i know what i did was wrong
just leave me please
im fine i will be fine.

    Crying for help in silence is natural, articulating our deepest feelings is always so hard to do. This is a heartfelt piece. (Report) Reply
