Buried Beneath a Smile

by lynnkennison

Buried beneath a smile

Lies the best little lie

Nothing’s as it seems

Nightmares and dreams

Life of turmoil

A hurting girl

Lost in a maze

But searching her way

Through dark roads alone

She doesn’t belong

But never once scared

She shouldn’t be there



No need to hide

A hurting girl’s plight

No need to worry

All part of her story

She walks with laughter

Before and after

And masking her

Morning and night

With the best little lie

Everything’s fine

Buried beneath a smile
