Three Simple Words - Poem by Crystal Blanchette

“Are you okay? ”
Three simple words.
We get asked them almost everyday.
We always respond
“Just tired.”
And nobody bothers to question it.

“I love you.”
Three simple words.
They get thrown around everyday.
Always responded with
“I love you too.”
And nobody bothers to question it.

“How are you?
Three simple words.
They get asked every single day.
Always responded with
“I’m okay.”
And nobody bothers to question it.

“Go hang yourself.”
Three simple words.
Some get told this everyday.
They always respond
“Why not? ”
And nobody bothers to stop them.
