Thanks For Asking

written by: L.M.Giannone



When someone asks
how I’m feeling today
I hesitate to answer
don’t know what to say
it’s not like a cold
that will just go away
it will always be there
whether night or day
in degrees and hues
and shades of gray
so thanks for asking
but I’m not ok
I may never be
it’s just the way
