Plastic Smiles

By
Plastic Smiles
This room
Is covered in plastic smiles
Attempting to hide the truth
And suffering you’ve caused them

This room
Is filled with remorse
For the boy around the corner
Who killed himself yesterday
His plastic smile
Led everyone to think he was ok
He was labeled
The loser, the freak
Not even called his own name
And now he’s been labeled
The depressed suicidal

This room
Is filled with meaningless labels
People aren’t meant to be labeled
We are equal
Even though we aren’t treated that way

Go ahead and poke fun
At the girl who sits alone
And fill this room with jokes
That will drown her smile
And melt away the plastic

Go ahead and laugh
About how she talks and looks
Just know
That every time you do
Her smile fades
And when the plastic
Completely dissolves
Her world will end

"This will certify that the above work is completely original"
