OK

By Prunella Nadler

(Stop telling me you're ok)
I've been to that place before
And made that fake face
My voice seemed to crack or race
It lilts too high
And don't catch my eye
My eyes don't lie

Look over my head
Focus on the wall
Imagine you are huge
And I am very small

Close your eyes
Breathe ,count or pray
Do you believe it today?
Stop for a deep minute
Breathe
Stop telling me you're ok
