1 Smile like you mean it

This smile.....

Its "dorky"

White toothed

big

Oh-so-happy

Its my smile

And guess what....

Its glass edges on my gums

Bleeding

Pulling on my muscles

It doesn't hurt to talk

Or laugh

.... or cry.....

But my smile

Is like cuts on my arms

" Im so emo"

And I smile for you

And her

That oh-so-happy smile

And even as my gums bleed

And my muscles are taut

I still will

So at least your smile can be real.

Smile like you meant it
