Close

Tears hide smiles,

Smiles hide tears,

Lies hide behind truth,

Truth hidden behind lies,

Force smiles and tears when you should but knowing that you shouldn’t,

Broken families,

 Broken dreams.

All hidden behind fake faces,

Fake families,

Fake friends,

Smiles on fake faces are the same as tears,

Tears on fake faces are the same as a smile,

Photos ripped down the middle’

Ripping them out never wanting to see it again.

But will when they come tomorrow

Printing quick one hating every minute

Into the bin with the ripped photos

Only to be done another time

Only for the same fate   

Ripped family photo
