Fake Smile Twisted Personality

Updated on January 5, 2018

The world around me is disgusting,

it hides beneath the glamour and glitz,

strangers pretend to be so trusting,

while they rip your soul to bits.

We all like to gaze on the positive,

and ignore the truth which throbs,

it's so much easier to take than give,

while the dream in your eye slowly robs.

People just like to stand and stare,

while the unfortunates slump on the ground,

with their eyes closed pretend not to care,

just walk away before they are found.

Are we brorhers or strangers of humanity,

we exist in circles of our own,

laugh at others unfortunate insanity,

and ignore the tears from their eyes as they groan.

Can I play with others sadness,

then pretend it's just a funny game,

while all around me is utter madness,

the twisted smiles of the lost and insane.

I see your game underhanded slur,

it's a shame others are so cruel,

false smile on your face pretend to care,

you treat others like yourself co's your a fool.

    I really enjoyed reading this poem. I connect with it in the sense that I am one of those who believe what people tell me only to learn later that which they say was all fake. How nice it would be if we lived in a world where honesty rather than deceit was the norm. Voted up.

    Hahaha, just the title of this hub poem alone denotes something interesting beneath it.

    A fake smile is hypocrisy; deceitful, and so is with fake laughter, a mockery with more disguise only the laughing hypocrite knows; a terrible display of embarrassing its subject. The smile and laughter of a hyena would be much admirable.
