Okay? Maybe.

“Are you okay?” They ask

“Are you fine” they say.

With a poker face I mask

Beneath, the cringing pains that lay.

Anxiety is a companion now

Distress, such a dear friend

My existence feels questioned somehow

This so called life is on a continuous descent.

“Why don’t I look happy?” They enquire

While coaxing me to put on a fake smile

Little do they know, the cheery lad disappeared

And it’s been quiet a while.

Amazing how a person can be both

Dying to burst out, yet hesitant to speak

I am now like a mammoth,

Outwardly strong, but about to be extinct, I’m that weak.
