Beneath A Broad Smile

in my mind i feel pain
a pain inflicted on me by the world, with all these thought am never on
time, i always sit and sob in the night train, i sometimes pass my stop
looking at my friend who life taught to kill.i always look in the
mirror, starring at my scars, the scars that made me cry, the scars of
my broken wing making sure i could never fly, sometimes i wish for death
but when it comes i say that's not what i meant, life is very confusing
which is one of the reasons that make me sob. you don't know this
because they are all beneath a broad smile.

I like the title, I think it's very catchy. Indeed we do cover our pains, tribulations, troubles... in broad smiles, especially when we understand that complaints only bring ridicule or contempt. A lover poem you've got here. Keep it up and thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
