A hidden smile
Followed by denial
A lost street kid standing in trial

Why do I cry but always end up smiling?
I want to give up, but won’t stop trying
I hide my emotions
I cry enough to fill oceans

Because even if my heart is broken
Even if my heart is bruised
My character always misused
I realised…

A smile is a smile
Long or a little while
A hidden smile
Is a smile all the while
Shown or not
A smile…

Is a smile whether shown or
Just hidden for a while
