Put on a dazzling smile so that no one can see your pain.

Thoughts run through your mind
‘I’m a failure, I’m worthless’
Invisible to everyone …

Lay down your right to be human.
Put on a dazzling smile so that no one can see your pain.
You hide it all so well, but underneath your shirt you can still feel the scars.
No one knows what it is like to be you.

Your smile is but one in a billion,
A mask that you wear to ward off the questions.
Your scars are your war paint,
But this is a losing battle.

You are sent to face the demons all alone, though they will never leave your side.
So keep that pretty smile steady,
And don’t let one tear drop from those stormy eyes.
Put on your war paint and go out into the world, where your smile makes you just like them.
