My smile was once so easy,
a thing of joy and pride,
but over these years of darkness,
the ease has slowly died.

I find it's no longer truth,
but simply a lying mask.
It hides away the misery,
the hauntings of my past.

I refuse to look at pictures.
I see what others ignore.
The uneasiness of my smile.
How it has turned into a chore.

Will I ever truly smile,
with joy, pride, and truth,
or will I never know a smile?
Will it die with the rest of my youth?

Please, i wish to laugh,
to smile without a care,
but I'm not good enough for this,
and I guess that is fair.
Just a quick poem for today. Thanks to jellybeansEVERYWHERE for showing me a website which gave me the idea for this.

Truth for many people. And when the smile is genuine it seems to get ripped away so fast.

I know. It's hard enough to try, and when you do, the happiness is gone too fast
