Dear Smiles

Dear smiles,


When I was young, you were constantly with me.

I radiated joy, so I was free.


I always was the child with smiles

Never brought down by life’s trials.

As time aged me I grew weary of all,

My inner turmoil bringing me downfall.

You became a constant facade,

An act worthy of applaud.  


Now I am true to what I always feel,

My face demonstrating the real deal of



Faithfully yours,
