What Lies Under My Smile

A beautiful smile and big brown eyes
Many can’t see pass my bright smile
To understand the feelings and the pain 
I’ve been holding in for a while 
Well it’s about time to let it out
My smile is not always the true happiness it’s portrayed to be
Sometimes it’s a blanket that covers and hides my true pain.
Every day when I look in a mirror I see a beautiful reflection
But there are still problems I seem to find.
Like this being too big, or that being too small.
But my insecurities aren’t all.
