   Everything's okay

Everything's all right

I'm in my room

Everything's just fine

I have a lot to learn

About emotions and then everything will be ...

I don't know what it'll be but it'll be better than this.

I can't take this stress

It's too much

I tell myself to channel it

And then

Everything will be fine



I've calmed

I've cooled

I've collected.

Life seems to be a little more ...

I don't know if this is the word,

Optimistic.

Now, everything is just fine.

It's all right.

But for how long?

I have to make it last.

But how?

Everything will be fine.

Or will it?

Who knows?

Why cares?
