If You Asked

If you asked me how I am today
I’d say I’m fine, I’m okay
I’d say it’s nice for a change
Setting out to a different range
If you asked me how I am today
I’d say I’m good, that’s what I’d say
I’m great and so is this place
Don’t you see it in my face?
This mask I wear to conceal
What in fact I really feel
Hide my tearstained eyes
Something you haven’t realized
Masking a fake smile while I’m at it
It’s becoming such a habit
I wish I could say this is easy
I wish it didn’t make me so dizzy
If you asked me how I am today
I’d say I’m readjusting just fine
Can’t you tell from my frown lines?
I mean, smile, since it’s all you see
A cover-up, a fake display of me
If you asked me how I am today
Well I would go out of my way
To say there’s nothing to worry about
I don’t sit here and sulk and pout
I am happy without a doubt
With how my life took upon this route
So don’t ask me how I am today
Enough of the bitter lies I must pay
To hide the emotions that are bursting
Enough with the life someone is cursing
No, if you asked me how I am today
I’d say I feel isolated and alone
My insides are now shown
I’d say I don’t feel at home
And I don’t even want to roam
This wicked place I’ve been placed in
And it seems like I can’t even win
With such heavy competition it seems
That even the sun’s glorious beams
Can’t burn the fact that I’m stuck here
Trapped in what feels like fear
Of never reaching the safe shoreline
A sanctuary not visible, so fine
Yeah, if you asked me how I am today
I’d rather not answer right away
But if you asked me how I’ll be tomorrow
I hope to answer without sorrow.
