Poem for Today

Okay is Not Today

Be gentle with me
I’m fragile
Broken
Hurting

The smile on the outside hides
The wounds
Bleeding
Oozing

I might appear strong but
I’m weak
Uncertain
Struggling

Without my North Star
I’m lost
Wandering
Homeless

I might say I’m okay
But inside
Screaming
Crying

So please be gentle with me
And realize
That okay for me
Is not today
