It's OKAY!

A poem? written in response to a creativity class I'm taking.



I'm okay! I say
Just okay? he asks.
Is it that bad?

I'm okay! I say
What does that mean? she asks
then waits to hear more.

Real vs. official feelings 
authentic or hidden emotions,
when to share them? I ask.
Only my heart holds the answer.

Personal journaling forces me deeper
past surface difficulties
to the deeper levels of self
out of safety zone.

Next comes CHANGE once truth
surfaces and the decision to
remain in a rut or take action,
grow creatively or stagnate.
