"Do what you feel in your heart to be right- for you'll be criticized anyway." -Eleanor Roosevelt

Fake smiles are like masks

Using them for a task

To cover up all the worry and hate

Not willing to open that gate

The real ones make

The whole world escape

Warming the air

Showing no care

For all the despair

Focusing on the happiness 

Is what I do

When I smile for me and for you. 

The author's comments:

People always comment on how much I smile. I never really thought about it before, but I guess I smile because I am always trying to look on the brighter side of things. I can also always tell when people are trying to fake smile and supress their actual emotions. When I see people fake smiling I decide to try to make them smile for real because real smiles of true happiness are the best things in the world.
