The simplest of questions,
A harmless “how are you?”
Warrants not a simple answer,
As “fine” is never true.
Behind the eyes of those who say,
Such undeniably blatant lies,
Their thoughts into the darkness fade,
Away from human judgment hides.
It seems we fear to show the truth,
Of our secret states of mind,
We keep away from others ruth,
Our emotions left behind.
