How are you? Really! Behind the big smile and the all is well. The inner tears you cry, The deep thoughts of fear and uncertainty. Are you fine? Really! Underneath the heavy layers of makeup. Keeping all your scars in check. I ask again….. How are you? Really! Truth is, I am good, never been better. I admit, I don’t have it easy. I have a ton of burden on my shoulders. I struggle here and there. Cry sometimes even. I am my only truest friend. The one always there for everybody else. In the midst of all this, I am good, never been better. Really! If you ask me, how am I? Really! I’d say I am fine. Really! I understand that my troubles won’t last. That has been proven. Though I cry sometimes, I will always smile again. And after all is said and done, A lesson is learned, it all becomes history and I, much stronger for the next challenge. So if you ask, How am l? Really! I’d say…… I am good, never been better. Really!
