Behind a Broken Smile


Stale eyes stare

Jaded and filled with lost hope

Who is left to care

In world filled with detest


Humanity is losing its way

People define others without knowing

There isn't much left to say

No one is left to fight for what's right


Who is left to say 'For I am a beautiful soul'

Where there is spark there is flame

In a world so dim and out of control

It is easier to hide from the hate


Filled with a heart full of potential

Take a step forward

Feelings remain confidential

A hardened heart sees the light


These emotions screaming to get out

Glass shatters and trumpets play

Behind the smile there is doubt

Liberation for peace within
