Don't I look like the happiest person on earth in this picture?
But is this smile genuine or a fake one?
You don't know and maybe you'll never know.
It's really scary what a smile can hide; maybe I'm smiling at the thought of murdering someone, or maybe I'm smiling at the thought of committing suicide. But you think I'm happy because I'm smiling.
All that glitters is not gold
Looks can be deceiving my dear.
Time and again we've been told to not to judge a book by its cover but we are unable to overcome the temptation of doing so or maybe we are not willing to dig deeper and see what lies behind the superficial and the larger than life smile.
A smile, can hide a million thoughts behind it!
A smile, can hide a million emotions behind it!
A smile, can hide a million sad faces behind it!
A smile, can hide a million other things behind it!
But never mind because I'm smiling and so you think I'm happy.
P.S - If we make an effort to look behind the smile, then maybe we can save a million lives.
