TO ALL THOSE WHO REGULARLY WEAR A FAKE SMILE:
Please understand that you don't need to hide your pain, sometimes, it's okay to cry...

A Fake Smile

To hide true emotions,

Probably isn't good,

But if it helps you cope,

Then I guess you should -Smile a fake smile

 

One small smile means nothing,

Even if it's fake,

Even if they're mean or nasty,

It will only ever take - Smiling a fake smile

 

They're Terrible

They find it weak when you cry,

But it's hard not to,

Well, I guess you should try -Smiling a fake smile

 

You hate them, understandable,

You hate having to suppress emotion,

Yet it has saved you more than once,

I guess it all comes down to the devotion -of Smiling a fake smile

 

One Day I Want Someone To Look Past The Fake Smile, Pull Me In And Say, "No. Your Not Okay."

Yep, I can relate to this. As long as no one has to know and you can just keep smiling!
