smiles are misleading

Don’t ever believe them

Fake smiles, all I know

Ornate my face, people are jealous of

the pain I concealed inside

Turmoil in head

You will never know

Soul crying in the dark

Running in distress

Anxiety which I never divulge

Hiding behind that big smile

More afraid of sympathy

That is never meant

Gives more grief

As nobody ever understands

I smile and laugh

On my petty self

Before anyone else would know

May be

Giving me the strength to face it all

To always put a brave self

Is not easy, you know

want for an escape

Where I can be myself

Not all smiling faces

Are happy faces, you know

Smiles are always misleading, I guess so!!!!!
