Title? No.

I, we all wear masks

A layer of fakeness to supress the emotion of our true selves

We wear these smiles everyday, hoping no one sees through us

that we are just like the joker 

we painted 

no carved our smiles in

hoping that no one washes off the make up

to reveal a whole new person is lying underneath

that person should be seen

and heard because it is screaming for help

but yet all you can see is a scar for a smile

This smile hides so much truth that if it were to dissappear

the world would die because the truth hurts.
