When I say that I am okay
Just take it
For I will not admit the pain
That made me cry today

It is not that I want to be cruel
For you care enough to know that I am alive
But it is so hard
To try to take the risk of taking down my guard

For my heart, it has turned to stone
Designed it to be cold, with the thorn vines keeping you out
No one will come and rip it out, not ever
Leaving a gapping hole of nothingness there to kill me eventually

When I say I am okay
Do not second question me
For I know I lied to you about being happy before
About the fears that keep me awake at night

Too proud that I will keep standing on my own
Even when they are blistered and bleeding
I will not falter
Will not succumb to the weakness of leaning on another

This stubbornness is me, it forms my being
The hell I put all of those through when they see me cracking
That I smile, yet they see me screaming
Someone this cruel deserves no one, just to exist tormented

When I say that I am okay…
everyone that says they are okay, just fine when they are really cracking inside, but cant admit it. either they are too stubborn or proud...they dont intend to hurt the ppl that care...enjoy

Can definitely relate... this is anothe good human observation. Many people tend to say they are okay when in reality they're dying inside.

Or something like that. But people have their own reasons for lying and saying they're okay.. =/ Really good poem though.

thanks, thats true many ppl have their own reasons, but one thing i noticed its cause they dont want to feel "expose" since everyone can control that...they can control how they want to be seen in order to protect their "real self" since that is what is most precious to a person ya know what i mean ^^

well when you asked me which one was my favourite i would have to say this one!

I used to be like that when i was younger and sometimes old habits are still hard to break so this one definately spoke to me!

cool I wasnt sure about it but the further I read the more I liked it especially when at the end you say "when I say that I am ok" one last time :)
