Not everyone with a big smile on the outside
is smiling on the inside.
Some are drowning in sadness, close to suicide
and with no one to confide.
When success meets you in life
Not everyone congratulates you from the heart.
They would rather see you in strife
and gloat when your life is torn apart.
Not everyone heading to the Altar
has a good intention.
Some set out to hurt their partner
Just To beat Immigration.
Not everyone in a high position of power
Is worthy of that respect.
They are just people in Uniform
With a big, fat pay check.
Not every child is happy at home
They’re not given a kiss or even a hug.
We’re harsh on them, as the streets they roam
and eventually become a Thug.
What you see, is not what’s there
The truth will never be laid bare…….
