Being fine !


She said she was fine
the sentence that had become
a default setting in her brain
letting her oblivious to reality

but no one is really fine
in the dark
speaking to the voices
in their head
fighting the demons
haunting them
all on their own
and crying to themselves
all through the night,
getting ready to face the light,

no one is fine in the light
with only themselves in sight.

  1. We smile on the outside, but within; the darkness is what they can’t see. Within there’s a fight, the darkness and the light; which one will emerge victorious? So you smile, you pretend; that the tears they see, still means you’re just fine!

    Even though others can see a light, they still have no sight; to what’s happening inside! Lovely piece!

  2. You are such a fine writer and you know how the heart works. Being fine is a reflex, just like when someone sneezes and we say bless you. Saying I’m fine is a common answer, and your poem tells it correctly. But to uncover a layer is to discover truth, and if the question is sincere in how one is, happiness will be a find and not just fine. Lovely post based on reality.🌹🌹

  3. Everyone is scared to unveil their vulnerability … everyone is scared of prejudices of the society so “I am fine” is a mantra to put on the facade……….you have spoken of truth …that too poetically πŸ€—

  4. Very on point and well written. It seems I too as we all must default to β€œfine” especially when it is the complete opposite as we choose to suffer internally, silently.

    • Thank you so much for taking the time to comment πŸ™‚ I really appreciate it
      Judgement is a reflex in a society we live in, people will judge no matter what you do, so as you said ‘I will feel and I will decide’ that’s the best thing we can do to ourselves.
      I loved your post ❀
