I cried in silence
I didn’t want anyone to know.
Not that no one cared
I just thought they wouldn’t understand.
They may think I’m fickle
They may think I just want to be noticed.
So I say nothing
Pretend I’m fine
Fake a smile
And laugh a lie
But I’m broken and I know I need to fix myself
Sometimes I say I’m fine,
Even when I’m not.
Sometimes I pretend so shine
Even when the hurting hits the spot.
Sometimes I pretend to be alright
Because if I’m not yet, I know I will be.
I was fine for a while
I was okay for a while
It was all fine and dandy
But after a while,
Finally admitted I wasn’t as fine as I pretended to be
I saw him
Way over there
Making his way
Walking towards me
I was half expecting he would look up
Maybe wave at me,
Or even just smile at me
But he didn’t
He just kept walking
He stopped and gave me a hug
And that was fine too
I am in space
I constantly look up to the sky
Some may think I’m lonely
I think I’m strong enough to stand on my own
I’m great and that’s the truth
I’m fine, I’m grand
I am in space because I love to contemplate
How was the second day?
Better than yesterday?
Not everything went well
But still I hope it was swell.
I’ll see you on the third and the day after that.
Has anyone checked on you?
Asked you if you’re okay or blue?
If no one bothered then do not fret
Not all things we can get
But let me be the one to ask
How was your day’s task?
If not all was well, that’s okay
It’s only the end of day
Let’s try again tomorrow, shall we?
Let’s help each other, you and me
So I ask, how was your day?
I do hope you are okay
I was fine yesterday
Minding my own business
But you had to come look my way
And that’s when everything changed
“I feel fine”, is what I always say
But most often, I’m really not
I feel fine, physically I do
Emotionally though, I’m really not
I feel fine, I don’t show the hurt
But I know soon I really will
I feel fine, that’s what I always say
Even when in truth I’m not
A flower is happy when the sun shines
And the same when it rains
It needs both to grow and bloom
It needs happiness and pain
Too much sun can kill it dry
Too much rain and it will drown
Like you and me we need to smile
But sometimes we have to frown
A little of both and we’ll be alright
A little of both and we’ll be just fine
