Smiling Facez


Smiling Faces
Can tell lies
For if you
Would just look
A little closer
At times,
You may find
It's a crooked
Upside down frown
Only smiling vividly,
Seemingly filled with humor
When other people are around
Only to cover up the huge turmoil
Down inside

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Ive found many people to be hurting, discouraged, , even suicidal.
While no one ever claims to have really knewn.
So, I pray this piece will bring awareness to others hidden struggles,
Sooner than later. It's okay to look a little closer. Its inhuman not to care.

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:
And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.
