My first viewed poem/writing ever seen by anyone

The smile

People see the smile on my face and never think it’s out of place,
They think I’m happy and handle things well because I’m just not strong enough to tell.

They don’t see the hurt inside,they will probably never know what I hide,

I push it down and burry it deep,but it try’s to claw its way out when I’m alone or try to sleep,

The fact I know this bothers me to But I really don’t think there’s anything I can do

Just bury them things deep inside the hurt pain and sadness and try not to cry.

I simply can’t let these feelings go as part needs it to continue my show
because as much as the pain is so twisted and raw I think I deserve it and should probably have more .

So don’t always judge the smile on someone’s face because there insides could be in a very different place .

Really like your poem. I can relate to that as I'm the same. I like the way you describe the darkness within trying to get out. Looking forward to reading more.

This is very good. I'm interested and if you don't mind me asking, how old are you?

I am very much looking forward to reading more from you.

It’s very interesting to read other peoples views as in the end our views are very similar. I can relate to both your poems very much.
