A World Full Of Fake Smiles!

Rating: 4.7
</></></>Today I went to a city side,
What a fake world with
such a fake smile..! !
I couldn't talk to people
I love, and Laughed with people I didnt like..
Today I went to a city side..
what a misery!
I bought a t-shirt worth nothing,
With 90% discount,
and exclaimed with haughty pride..! !
I talked to people far off,
but could not recognize the one who lives beside..
This was the taste of city side..
I crossed the pingy poo of roads
and went to eat and get some life..
I emptied my wallet, its every penny,
but I am still hungry,
This, oh God! I cannot hide...!
I billed and smiled,
a fake smile..to the people there inside..
and said good bye to the city side..!
This was the taste of city side! !

I loved the immediacy and the feeling of being right there at your side as you went through the city streets- - that is talent, my friend

That is called diplomacy. Smiling while you are hurting is indeed going with the flow. What a fake! A nice poem. I enjoyed it very much. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.

True, Abhishek, there are still too many fake smiles in the world. Truth is so precious. We all try to hide our feelings. For what? There is really nothing wrong with being sad. On the other hand a smile can often work wonders Let our sad moments be sad, and otherwise lets wear a genuine smile Good, thought provoking poem. Well done
