Kick The Darkness Till It Bleeds Daylight, Not Mine, But I Love The Saying....; When life gives you lemons, throw them at other people and yell "Make some stinkin lemonade!"; Otay!

So cut and clean and happy
Fake smiles hide dark secrets which our eyes cannot see
Directed by people, in which way to stand next to our “loved ones”
When in our minds, we are so far away
A picture’s worth a thousand words
But not all of them are true
Painted smiles and fake glass eyes are hiding the truth within you
Darkness hides beneath the frame which seems so warm and true
A picture only captures a moment, which for most, is fake
Your soul is screaming, and your makeup hides your tear stained cheeks
You put on your best Sunday clothes, to hide the bruises, cuts, and blood
Yes, pictures are deceiving
So which ones will you believe?

This poem is about how pictures lie. They never show the truth, underneath pictures are all sort of things. Abuse, drugs, hatred... This poem is about it's disguise.

very good writing, inspiring. after touching this up to make it a better freeverse, it'll turn out great as long as not to repeat too many words.

“People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway."

Absoultley true,, 100% right! Really nice word choices. I think you should choose a more creative title that would grab the reader ;)..
