I'm Fine



Numerous stars have gathered in the sky,
twinkling and asking, "How are you now?"
My body terribly weak and eyes dimmed,
"Yes, I'm fine", I spoke out, instead of a cry...

The mosquitoes and the flies have ceased to sing;
the chilling breeze of the night made me shiver...
Only I needed a warm cozy blanket...
But I'm fine, on this hard stony flooring...

Down with high fever and excruciating body pain,
I walked to the shops in search of food and drink...
Their ice cold hearts quenched my thirst...
Still, I'm fine with all the needs stored in my brain...

The sun setting in the west, looked so radiant and round,
I could then see the darkest night,
without the moon, without the sky...
Oh, yes!! I'm fine now, locked in a box underground...
