Are You Truly Happy?

Is one able to smile when told to?
Is one truly happy with their life as it is right now?
Can you smile when asked if you are happy?
One can say he is content with life.
Yet there is that thought that lingers on his mind.
'I am content, but not happy.'
Yet if he were to say such a thing
He would be looked upon ungrateful when he truly is not.
Yet he has no choice but to lie those around him.
And put on a fake smile when it's truly a frown.
Do you not feel that empty void in your heart? In your life?
As each passing day goes by
As time moves forward without a care.
Same old routine, sky is blue and trees are green.
I ask again.
Can you smile when asked are you happy?

A Touching poem, Direct from your Heart.We have to understand some facts in Life. A part in us always like to feel Sorrowful. The Irony is it feels Happy to be Sorrow. It is quite usual in everyone, when one feels isolated. You have brought out the same thro' your poem.
