((11) Painting Smiles

Rating: 5.0
We build a world
where truth is dangerous.

We paint smiles,
smiles to hide
we don´t know why.

Fear and lies,
the bricks we use
to build this mask.

Smile is the light of this world..I agree with Ben, it is a better way to act not to hurt each other sometimes, even if it seems not very sincere..But actually I believe that any smile is true in origin for its intention to bring more light to Earth. Humanity really needs more smiles. Thanks for this thought-provoking poem, best wishes and sincere Smile to you :) A.

This is the truth and probably the better way to act; otherwise, we end up hurting too many or being hurt in return. It is too easy to offend others, even when being truthful, and once offended the consequence cannot be undone. Better to smile and send the message of acceptance and wishing one well.
