You Say Smile


You say smile, but why should I?
For me, happiness is not to be found
Hope always brushes my fingertips
Then disappears into the ground.

You say smile, but what for?
Sadness keeps me company
Depression is my constant friend
Tears blind me to see.

You say smile, but how can I?
An easy expression, so alien to my face
Feeling lost is what I'm used to
Always searching for my place.

You say smile, but that will never happen.
It's too late to do that anymore.
Smiling is to believe in hope and happiness
I've already been hurt to the core.
