The poem(s) are below...



A smile can hide a thousand tears
keeping lies unknown throughout the years
hiding away one's darkest fear
but it never feels the pain i bear....

A tear to unite me with those of broken heart 
A smile to be a sign of my joy in existence...

I smile instead to hide my undefined behavior
believing that the tears work is to only clean 
and lubricate the eyes
not ruin anyone's life......

At times tears trickle down the cheeks
accompanied by the sobbing sounds that i dislike
and have a disbelief......
no strong intense emotions light up while i cry
but i try to build a thinking about the world looking at me
 finding me to be a weak person.....

when i smile, i love the feeling of my muscles contracting near my eyes
and spreading positivism around ......
called the grimace an involuntarily expression of anxiety makes me feel completely different from others and blabbers out many emotions....

some people are too tired of giving a smile 
after knowing it will cost them nothing 
but yes no one needs a smile as much as those who have none to give....
therefore, smiling is a hobby and tears!!! ohhh!! just forget about it 
they are just a small amount of garbage that needs to be put aside in its proper place.....
