when they ask “How are you?”
but you’re convinced no one cares
how can you say anything but
the larger more honest answer
is ignored, it clamours for escape
from a mind that can see none
Paraphrased from a Friend's Facebook Post
"Are you okay?"
No, I'm not okay, I'm not okay at all. I'm depressed and I feel like I'm worthless, like no one cares about me nor has a reason to care about me. I need to tell someone about it. I need someone to care, to tell me it's going to be okay, to help me to be okay. I want to tell someone all about it. But I’m worried that if I tell you, you won't care. That if I tell you you’ll just say it’s all in my head.
"I'm fine, thanks."
