"Are you okay? " He asked.
by an unknown person
The question I've been waiting my whole life for.
And when the words release into the air,
A chaos of emotions take over,
Engulfing me like fire engulfs dry grass.
My heart begins to ache,
And my body begins to shake,
And my eyes begin to tear,
And my hands begin to quiver,
And my breath becomes shallow,
And my world begins to renew,
After all the suffering and pain,
Cared enough to ask the question.
