Don’t be fooled by her perfect smile.
They hide stories of battles won,some lost and many being fought.
Don’t be fooled by the beauty ofher almond-shaped eyes,
As she looks on kindly, withoutany inhibitions,
Know that they have cried hermany a tear and caused sleepless nights.
Don’t be fooled by her genialmien.
They hide her flaws, guilt andsecrets.
Don’t be fooled when she lendsyou her ears,
Remember, she hears more than yousay.
Cutting through your lies and unravellingyour secrets,
She continues to smile.
Don’t be fooled be into believingshe is fragile
Like glass. Hardened, weatherbeaten and battling demons,
She is fragile like a ticking time bomb.
