a fake,
   a fraud,
       your smile.

look into the mirror

          look into your own eyes
they deceive you.

they share it with the world.
they show your pain.

you smile
        and they contradict you,
you laugh
        and they cry

you sing
        and they sigh

you hug
        they push away

        never letting your guard down
                                   they still let us in
everyone knows
all your pain shows

you act happy
but we all know the truth

it's a fake,

   a fraud,
       your smile.
