Smile for the Camera

I will not smile,
That isn’t how I feel.
How could I express to you
Something that isn’t real.

I’ve looked into the mirror,

It being what I didn’t want to see.

It’s because I couldn’t stand

What I understand now stood for me.
When between me and the camera,
Everything is clear.
I look with horror
Isolated, I see myself, with fear.

So to the camera I decide,

I do not intend to lie.

I hope maybe the camera will see

That inside I want to cry.
