"HIDING BEHIND A SMILE"

Hiding behind a smile
So outsiders looking in
Think that everything is fine
It’s your armour and your defence
To the ever prying questions
“Are you alright?”
Your repetitive nonchalant replies of
“I’m fine” or “I’m okay”
When you know deep down inside
That nothing is dandy anymore.

You hide behind a smile
One that is so glowing and bright
Sparkling like your effervescent personality
That you also use as a shield
Which you hope will deter further investigation
Into your wellbeing into your inner psyche
But your eyes will never lie
They’ll always betray your deepest feeling
Your darkest emotional state of mind
If someone wants to really see the truth
They will see instantly
They won’t be jaded or blinded by preconceptions
They’ll clearly see just how much you hurt inside
And if you let them, the can offer you a hand
Help raise your spirits once again
By pointing you back in the right direction
So you’ll no longer have to hide behind a smile
Because you will have something to smile about
And everything to live for again.
