Of Course I'm Okay (Original Poetry)

OF COURSE I'M OKAY,

DO I NEED TO EXPLAIN?

I'M BUSY, I'M WORKING THROUGHOUT THE DAY.

I'VE PUT UP WITH IT, BUT NOW I'LL COMPLAIN.

I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT,

I'M DOING JUST FINE!

I GET TIRED OF BEING ASKED ALL OF THE TIME.

DID I HEAR A SIGH?

WHY DIDN'T YOU EVER SEEM TO REGISTER MINE?

STOP TALKING YOU SAY?

YOU DIDN'T SAY THAT?

YOUR ACTIONS PORTRAY,

THAT YOU REGRET ASKING ME, THOUGH I BEG YOU PLEASE STAY!

PERHAPS AFTER THIS,

YOU WILL UNDERSTAND,

THAT I AM PERFECTLY GRAND!

ALAS! I DOUBT IT.

I'LL WAIT TO NEXT DAY,

TO EXPLAIN AGAIN THAT OF COURSE I'M OKAY.
