Allen Steble

Many Stories Behind A Smile

there are many stories
behind a persons smile
what we don't see
in their hidden files
a history of violence
a past of depression
a story of broken love
a tale of recession
i don't know what
but whenever i see someone smile
their eyes tell me
their past is a mystery
hidden behind a smile
