Sorrow beneath laughter

By Oluwaseun Dara:

Beneath the laughs that fill the air,
Lies hidden sorrow, deep despair.
A smile may mask the pain we feel,
But deep within, the hurt is real.

We paint our faces with a grin,
Hoping no one sees what’s within.
But sorrow lingers, like a cloud,
That follows us, in every crowd.

So let us be kind, and offer love,
To those who hide, with a mask above.
For in their laughter, there may be,
A world of hurt, that they can’t see.
