Smiles can be fake

Growing up i always thought smiles a sign of happiness a caring gesture: that could brighten someone's day white teeth...pink gums: Presenting a welcoming appeal ...no one ever told me that smiles can be fake: a camouflage for hatred & disapproval the currency for trading favors! like a worm on a fisherman's hook ...appetising yet deadly! Nowadays...people jus don't get to smile they rather smile just to "GET" it's not natural....no it's not!!! like a scene on a movie : choreographed to capture attention! Quash Quash Quash!... to mere instruments of deception! Pray for the eyes to see : to see through all the smiles! The wisdom to discern : all the fake from the echt! ohhh i have seen it all... & i live to testify: YES...smiles can be fake!
