I Sink Into Sadness Read Count : 43

"I'm fine ! I'm good ! I'm O.K. !"
I shouted at them,
 Trying to get to my feet once again.

 You don't see that I look like you,
 But I feel different?
 Your questions make me feel
 Uncomfortable sometimes.

  A label cannot define myself,
My soul is undefined.
Trying to hide also from myself,
To feel safe among them.

But sometimes I get stuck in my fear 
That follows me everywhere.
I'm tired of waiting for the train 
 That never comes for myself.

  I'm getting old, 
My hair color is changing to white.
 "I'm fine ! I'm good ! I am O.K. !"
Another lie I learned to tell.

 You don't need to worry about me, 
I'm playing the role you already wrote.
Nothing sweet is happening,
But I still kept my hope.

 Before you laugh at my tears, 
Ask me why I'm crying, 
Maybe you're the reason 
I sink into sadness...

  • people sometimes put on 'masks' to hide their true feelings from others likè a poker face that gives nothing away, I learnt that from various friends who are going through depression, hope you are going to be OK, if I could give you a gift that would make everything alright I would, or fix you up with the person who has been inspiring you to write all your wonderful poetry I would, all the best from the UK, Lee
