I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


Clearly you see that I'm not.


But really I'm fine.


Always have been.


But no I'm not.


I'm not fine.


Saying your fine means nothing.


It is a lie.


But I say it anyways.


It's all I can say.


To keep them away.


Because telling them won't help.


Because they don't understand.


Explainations won't do.


So I say those two words.


Just to keep them satisfied.


While my mind scream "I'M NOT FINE".


My lips are in a straight line.


I show no signs of being "not fine".


But that's just a mask.


So really, I'm not fine.


But I'll keep saying it.


I'll keep saying it till you're satisfied.


Because it's my problem.


It's never your problem.


So you shouldn't have to worry.


But I want you to worry really.


But telling you that is selfish.


I can't be selfish.


Selfish is bad.


Not good.


So if you ask,


Yes I am fine.


But no I am not fine.


I am far from it.


But I'll tell you that lie again.


So you don't make that face.


Even thought I'm not fine.


But really.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


I'm fine.


......


I'm....not....fine....
"I'm Fine" is a phrase often used commonly amongst people to describe they are content.

However I dedicate this to a certain important someone who can't clearly say what they wanted to and instead tells people those two words. The complete opposite of how they actually feel due to a bit of a guilt-complex.

Oh then:

Submit Art => Choose category => Choose "Literature" => Choose whatever category that branches out from there => Choose the style you are going for => Soon you will be faced with the option of "Upload File" or "Add Text" => Click "Add Text" => Type/Paste whatever it is you wanted to put there and organize/style it with the coding.

Hopefully this helps in someway to you.

The problem is, the more persistent the person asks the more likely person being asked will close up.
It's hard for me to describe seeing as I'm trying my best to get the person I dedicated this poem to to open up a little.

Thank you.

I'm currently trying to get the person I dedicate this to to be a little more outspoken of how they really feel.
So far, I'm making some progress with them.
