What is Wrong?

What is Wrong?

A Poem by Tejana

Free verse.

I know what it is
But I cannot explain it.
In my attempt to give you an answer
I would already be diagnosed with
A multitude of mental illnesses.
We both know that something is wrong,
But do you really want to know?
Are you not urging yourself out of 
Courtesy and pity?
When I give you the most adequate
Answer that I can muster, 
You offer vague encouragement.
In your quest to inquiry
You must need my answer.
You must care for me.
You must not ask for my book to be opened
If none but the title is in your interest.
You must not be satisfied with my summary.
You must be prepared
To shoulder my burdens.
You must be prepared to help me 
In a way that is resourceful.
The only thing that is wrong
Is the way in which you ask what is wrong.

Author's Note

I have no idea why I italicized those words either. Maybe for stress. I don't really know.

Do I please you ? Am I here for you ?
Then nothing is wrong.
Thanks for the littany of questions and
the answer remains----- Everything is fine.
