I find it really funny
How people say
"You'll be okay"
When I can see they are still struggling.

Is it selflessness that guides them
To give a kind word and a warm embrace
And to try and lift
The spirits of someone suffering?

Or is is selfishness that guides them
To offer reassurance of the future
Because despite their inspired words
They have lost all hope for themselves?

I find it really funny
That I always say
"You'll be okay"
When I don't know what that means myself.
