I’m Fine

April 29 – National Poetry Month Challenge

I know why her response is “I’m fine”
for she knows anything else
will cause me to become distressed
make me wonder what more can I do?
Am I doing enough
Am I kidding myself
Am I strong enough
not to melt down and rebel
at this sickness that has grasped the heart of my mom
her lungs and her core
sickness does not belong.
Yet I must ask everyday
Mom how do you do
and her response will be
“I’m fine, and you?”



A creative nut with endless possibilities to offer the world. Just need to start with one possibility - my words.
