How many times...

How many times have I told you, "I'm fine."?
You believed me and didn't see that I was lying
Behind this mask we call a face
My emotions are hidden, what a waste
So its a secret
And I fight with myself to keep it
A never ending struggle
With feelings that could only cause trouble
I laugh it off
But you don't know me well enough
When I say "I'm OK."
It is a lie I speak everyday
I don't want to worry you
Again and again you believe its true
Nothing seems to faze me
But in reality I can't stand to face me
So I say it once more
Just not the same as before
"Really everything is good."
To hide the part of me that will never be understood

i think i say "i'm fine"  even when im not is because most people don't even want to hear any other answer. They just ask to be nice

I love this Poem. This is like me some days and you just cannot tell people what is wrong or they don't take the time to listen
