Smile

Her smile hides what her eyes cannot.

Her brokeness is hard to spot.

 

The shattered life that no one sees,

the overwhelming pain underneath,

 

You'd never know by the way she laughs

of the fear and sorrow that she has.

 

The secret not seen by you and I

is  that a smile is the most common lie.
