an illusion of simplicity

beneath our smiles

no one ever really knows
what battles others are fighting
beneath the beauty of their smiles,

I sometimes fear we don’t even know
just what battles we ourselves are fighting,

we all contain multitudes,
and it’s an illusion of simplicity
our faces can offer to the world.
