Smile A Fake Smile

you can walk around with your fake smile
for the world to see
but we all know that behind those eyes
pain hides within
you can walk around seemingly content
with everything in life
but we all know that it is nothing more
than a lie
standing outside looking in on your life
all seems normal and happy
no one sees the things you hide inside
from everyone
no one sees past the bright colors you paint the walls of your world
no one sees the blood stained walls and dark corners
that you try so hard to keep away from everyone
you can walk around with your fake smile
showing it to the world
but deep inside we all know your crying inside, dying inside
with every person who passes you and smiles back
you can walk around hiding inside the shell of a person
that you let everyone else see
we all know it is nothing more
than a lie
