Are You Truly Happy?

Rating: 3.7

Is one able to smile when told to?
Is one truly happy with their life as it is right now?
Can you smile when asked if you are happy?

'I am content, but not happy.'
Yet if he were to say such a thing
He would be looked upon ungrateful when he truly is not.
Yet he has no choice but to lie those around him.
And put on a fake smile when it's truly a frown.

Do you not feel that empty void in your heart? In your life?
