Hiding Behind Smiles


Do you know what is hiding behind this smile that you see?

Do you know of the pain that I keep just to me?

The world sees me laugh and smiling each day

No one knows of my hidden anguish inside that’s at play

For the smile is a barrier to keep people out

It hides from the world all my pain and self doubt

So when someone you know is smiling at you

Remember their hidden pains are not getting through

For we all in this word carry heartache inside

And our heartaches and pains from the world we hide

The scars for most are hidden deep within

Understanding their pains, most can never begin

So be kind to all whom we meet everyday

For we know not their inside as their tender hearts pray

A kind word and gesture to a stranger today

Might be the answer for which they earnestly pray
