Saw her smiling,
She’s a vivacious girl.
That guy on the field,
Oh! His lips have those beautiful curves.
The one with those storybooks,
He surely has a vibrant soul.
The one looking at you with tenderness,
Has a heart full of warmth.
I have it all, Laughs, love, empathy, satisfaction within me,
Everything good, just like these soft crumbs of a bread loaf.
But looking down the cup of my life,
I see that’s certainly not all I have got.
Weighing the happiness in these facades,
I know that appearances can be deceptive for sure.
With darkness as a constant companion,
The one you know can be the one you never really know,
There are faces we see,
And then we have the same faces carrying a cloak.
There’s an untold story to every person,
There are grief and pain, they carry forward.
Just like ‘Hope and Hopeless’ have the same beginning,
One can be ‘Dynamic and Dying ‘ at the same instant.
Dark circles, hidden with tons of makeup,
There are dark sides that we can not trim.
Yes, Happiness is my forever,
But with a lifetime of traces of grim.
