A smile does not have to mean that all is great in your life. Look at it this way, your smile could very well be your rainbow that tells yourself and others, "you're going to make it."

Smile Anyway
 
I know that you are hurting;
I mean not to dismiss your pain,
but please allow me to say
that your smile is not necessarily fake,
just because you are suffering.
 
See your smile as the emblem of your resilience,
your badge of honor and strength,
a bold statement of your will,
one that says "I will survive and I will rise
from the pit of my despair."
 
A smile does not necessarily mean all is well,
when this could not be further from the truth.
Your smile is not there to fool you, or others;
it is your rainbow that says to yourself,
your rainbow that tells the world,
that life is a gift to appreciate, rain or shine.
