Broken Smile - Poem by Lubinda Lubinda

Again and again
he would hide the pain
behind a broken smile
like a temporary fix
it would work only for a while!

No one could tell
from the first glance
or by his appearance
that he was unhappy
because he hid it so well
in fact, he appeared
to be always jolly

I guess that's why
everyone believed the cliché
that every thing is okay
whenever he'd say he was fine
after all, that's what everyone
expected him say!

But, since it was a temporary fix
it would often wear away
at the end of the day
the sad thing was that no one was there
for him because weren't really aware!

So alone, he would concede defeat as he faced his tremendous feat
as sank into depression!

And the sad thing is that
in the world of today
no one is really aware
of the other people
with broken smiles
because they go through
their struggles alone
because no one is really there
for them!
