Smiles are bright

About what is true

Smiles are bright

In the light.

So many people

Fake a smile

And a laugh

Every day

Of their life.

All you have to do

Is open your heart

And look around.

Then you will see


All of the fake smiles.

You will see

The hurt in their eyes

The tears

That they never cried.

All you have to do

Is open your heart

And see.

They are reaching out.

They are screaming inside.

Waiting for some one

With their heart open

To see

And hear

To hear what they want

You to see

But don't have the strength

To do anything

But act


And not sad.

How do I know?

How do you think I know?

I am a person

Who writes what their heart says.

If you open your heart

You will see

That I am hurting

Like the people I talked about.

Open your heart

And you will see

What I mean.
