Are You All Right?

They keep asking me this question
I don't know how to answer

They say it again
And I still don't have an answer

Really, what do you say to that
I could say I'm fine, but that would be a lie
I could say everything, but then they would keep asking me questions

Questions i couldn't answer

That's when I simply smile and walk away

The question that's always asked, but never answered
Are you all right?
That's for you to decide

A valid point you raise - nice that people show concearn, although I admit can be wearing at times. Moyaxx
