Hiding Behind A Smle

Poetry By: sayhello

we don't all go through this most of us do. We just pretend everything is all right. But sometimes it might seem right but it isn't always. First it starts out like 'Hey ally how are you feeling today?" "fine" you say when actually your little brother annoys you to no end. This is alright. The person doesn't need to know your business unless you want them to. But then he goes from there to "Hey ally how are you" 'Fine" when actually you just slit your wrists. Am not trying to say it's wrong am just saying there is a point in life when you need to conjure up that fake smile.

Do you know how hard it is to hide behind a smile
to make it seem like everything is okay
to make sure nothing shows how you really feel inside
well it is really hard
it is hard to stuff all those troubles
behind a little fake smile
a smile you know that can reveal anything in a moment
a charade you know you can't keep up any longer
just waiting for the day
to let that smile waver
and just give it all away
to ask for help
before it is to late.
