i'm fine i promise

You can't see what's written in your palms

If you don't unclench your fists 

But the hurt is comfortable 

I've learned to live with it 

Hardwired to bite the hand that feeds me 

But it's fine these days i'm rarely hungry

Life tastes more bitter than sweet 

Anxiety is eating away at me 

Breathe in breathe out 

Close your eyes calm down 

They say 

My legs give out 

My system shuts down

They pray 

To God or the stars 

Or maybe the unknown 

Turn up my palms show the words

To the heavens and the angels alone
