Are you fine?
Yes, I am fine.

Are you sure?
Yes, I am sure. I am doing fine.

What tells you that you are fine?
Everything tells me that I am fine. I mean I am alive. And I am not in bad health or shape. I do what I need to. I study. I smile. I talk. I listen. I respond. And then I return home. And I prepare for tomorrow. So, I guess I am fine.

So, you feel okay then?
Okay is a strange word. I mean I am fine. But I don’t feel okay about it.

And why is that?
Because I don’t feel happy. I guess.

Why are you sad then?
I am not sad. I just don’t feel happy. And not being happy isn’t being sad. It’s just.. I don’t know?
I guess I am just fine.
