Hey, Are You OK?

you saw me fall
but carried on
not bothering to see
if another, an other,
needed you to care
and simply ask me
hey, are you ok?

** How many times have I seen someone in need, either physicall or emotionally, and instead of offering my help, hesitated hoping someone else would give a damn so I wouldn’t have to? “I am a good and caring person,” I tell myself, and I convince myself that believing it is enough. I see someone hurting and mistake the “feeling” of caring for actually caring. Someone I meet today is hurting. Do I really care enough to risk taking the time to ask, “Hey, are you OK?”? **
