BEHIND THE SMILE

robin-williamsBehind the smile
There is sometimes tears.

Behind the smile
There is sometimes hurt.

Behind the smile
There is sometimes pain.

Behind closed eyes
You don’t know what is seen.

Behind closed doors
You don’t know what goes on.

You can’t hear
Unexpressed thoughts.

Don’t assume everything is okay
When it might not be.

Be careful
With your words.

Think before you speak
Something you can’t take back.
