Behind a smile

By A.G.G   

Behind a smile.

My lips are filled with laughters and smiles

While my eyes are drained with tears and sadness

My heart is broken, for my mind is set apart

My body is outstay, for my soul is unsettled

My skin heals, but my heart still bleeds

For my body has been broken from the inside

Yet, smiles lies on my lips

People wish to be me, but they know not what is within

A sorrowful heart that is covered with laughters and smiles

For my tongue has tasted sorrow and my eyes has seen beyond

But my lips still covers the pain with smiles

But the smiles are still not enough to suppress the within

Cause happiness dwells not in my soul

And yet, people still wish to be me

Failing to see beyond the smile and behind the mask

Behind the mask that lies a broken smile

And behind the smiles that beholds a broken heart

So wish not for the smile has been defiled

For all the glitters are not gold and all gold does not glitter

Just a heart that bleeds and a smile that withheld

For behind the laughter is a broken child.
