an empty smile, a painful laugh

if only they could drive away all you fears, remove all your doubts and ease your pain then it won’t be half as bad

truth is they can’t. but you try anyway. you put on the sweetest smile and the loudest laugh and hope that they’re enough for the rest of the world to believe that everything’s ok. all the while uttering a silent prayer that maybe, just maybe, when you try hard enough, you too will believe and the pain will just go away.

and as long as I myself can see beyond the smile, I will keep on trying.

Somebody just came in, time to smile again…
