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.

I say I'm fine all th-the time but re-really i hold in anger, and when I get really angry I can't control my emotions. I yelled at my class for being idiotic and while I was yelling I started crying. I can't control it because I hide them up in a small bottle. Really like this by the way.

Yeah, the same thing happened to me once. I bottle up my emotions, and then one day let it all out, then it starts over again. Once my class was being stupid so I got up and screamed at them, and then they were all looking at me, and one game me a bad look, so I punched him in the face, and ran outside the classroom and cried.

Wow...I thought I was alone on that.I did that on the last day of term,and my teacher had to calm me down cos I was pissed off with the class. I've always bottled up my feelings, and its even worse if aspergers is present too ^^; I get extremely angry but I hide it at school,and let loose afterschool because I struggle to hold my feelings back for too long.

yeah me too, if you say "I'm good" you're generally OK or fine, if you say your "OK" or "fine" you're generally not so good, if you say you're "great" you're generally good, and if you're great generally nobody ask.
