The simple things can be worth while,

A joyous laugh, a loving smile.

We take these things as if they were free,

But some have secrets that others can't see.

Behind that laugh, a troubled heart,

A tortured soul that's torn apart.

Behind that smile, emotional distress,

A pleading pray for final rest.

Some have pain that destroy their life,

No relief from hardship, a continuos strife.

The world is full of actors that could win a gold prize,

But keeping in such emotions will be the start to their demise.

So before you think a smile is pure, think of what may be,

Think of what may be hidden, what you cannot see.

This was writting JUST for a very special friend of mine, who I felt and still feel doesn't express his feelings.
