The Boy with the Easy Grin

Watch closely

the boy with an easy grin.

You don’t know

what pain he is hiding within.


He desires

to be happy-go

and forces

to make himself so.


He does not

like unhappiness


No misery, no sadness.


Even though

he may have a heavy heart

he sure tries

to act a different part.


But an act

belongs in a play of pretend

and a play

will always have an end.


Watch closely

that boy with an easy grin

because he

may be hiding pain within.
