The Perfection of Deception

Mon, 07/20/2020 - 12:07 -- Wizdome

Smile to show pure joy 

Smile to mask the weight placed on 

your shoulders ...


Smile when you feel like the world is over

Smile to take the heat off unspoken 



Smile to show that you’re strong

Smile to hide what’s really going on

Smile a perfect way to mask the pain, 

which behind the eyes will remain ...


Smile to hide the deception from the world

Smile to wash over the fake and polite rudeness

society often gives..


Smile for self preservation masking the anger that

resides within...


Smile making a silent statement, they can never see you sweat 

Smile so one never sees what comes next..

Smile an over powering non verbal psychological weapon of warfare

that you never thought to use...


How do you wield this weapon...


Such a perfect weapon of deception....


The Smile...
