How many die, with a smile upon their face?

How often is it genuine, or cold and sarcastic?

How many's smiles are for the public, false and plastic?

What about the nefarious, the evil grins?

What about those born from the darkness within?

How many are truly from joy?

Such as a naive child playing with his toys.

A mask for the world,

Or placed involuntarily out happiness you see,

Let's hope that most smiles are true,

Not a cold 'I hate you, but don't want you to know,'

Or not a fake, put on for a show.
