I'm Okay...(Help Me)

I'm okay,

When I refuse to look you in the eye.

I'm okay,

When I hide in the shadows.

I'm okay,

When I hide behind my fringe.

I'm okay,

When the world is ignoring me.

I'm okay,

When I shut you out.

I'm okay,

When you ask me, and walk away.

I'm okay,

When I try and convince myself that I am.

I'm okay,

When I want to die.

I'm okay,

When I have a my mood swings.

I'm okay,

When I can't even look at myself.

I'm okay,

When I don't ask for help.

I'm okay,

When I pretend to smile.

I'm okay,

When I refuse to tell you what is wrong.

I'm okay,

When I am to afraid to tell you what is wrong.

I'm okay,

When I am really falling apart.
