Smiles have now replaced tears:
They do not come from joy,
But actualization of fears
In destiny’s employ.
I have no cause to trust anyone:
Not a jot of certainty or strength,
Within this heart or mind run,
Of any scope, or any length.
What certainty in principle I knew
Now bows to lessons from lies,
Love exists like it was never true
Tainted by a myriad sighs.
I wish I can still close my eyes and dream
Instead of smiles that hide the screams.
