Smile

A Poem by EileenMarie
"

Smile She smiles because she has to

"

Smile

She smiles because she has to

She smiles to hide the pain

She smiles to pretend

She smiles to make others feel better

She smiles to agree

She smiles because she doesn’t know what else to do

She frowns because she has to

She frowns to hide the joy

She frowns to fit in

She frowns to make others feel better

She frowns to agree

She frowns because she doesn’t know what else to do.

Smile………. Frown………… Smile

She has a beautiful smile

She feels warmth emanating from within when she smiles

She feels worthy when she smiles

She feels typical when she smiles

She feels elated when she smiles

She feels magnetic when she smiles

She feels! She feels when she smiles

She feels………….

I enjoyed this piece, so thank you for recommending me to read it. It is hard to smile when you do not want to and you have to fake it to please other. I use to be that way but not anymore. I only smile when i am truly happy and not to make others feel better. It was a tough habit to break because we are so ingrained with being polite but I got tired of being fake. To me, this piece really shows how hard it is to be fake and the toll it takes on our heart. Wonderful work. N.

Hardly can the lady thank me for speaking the truth! I'm grateful you shared it with us. :)
Smiling can hide many feelings, whether it be of anger, depression, or a genuinely happy smile. I love how you were able to express that so well in a short poem. You're an amazing writer, doll!

Thank you! This is one of my first poems!
We keep wearing those masks , for others , to play we are happy , to avoid questions , to avoid others to ask , sometimes we just prefer to wear the fake smile and say that everything is fine , just fine thank you

Thank you for your beautiful words

You can hear a heartbeat if you know how to listen... and remembering how and when to breathe is its own artform.
