smile for the camera

When ever i take a picture i have a hard time smiling,
It's the thought of capturing moments where i should be happy, but my feelings just won't latch.
Forcing smiles for pictures have always been hard for me.
The way people always make it seem like its a sell catch.
They advertise people always being happy,
but what about the ones who feel like they're dying inside.
Should we advertise our fake happiness in pictures.
Sometimes im confused,
I don't want to look back at a sad miserable person, but i don't want to lie to myself.
So when someone say " smile big "
I try my best to give a great smile, but my eyes always tell the truth.
