the backstage epiphany

where reality is so subjective it's entirely optional

Smile

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it’s breaking
That’s the time you must keep on trying
Smile; what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile
If you just smile

I know now that no matter how happy I am, no matter how much reason I have to smile these days, nothing can take away the pain, the heartbreak, and every tear I’ve shed. But because all that is from a different life, a different time, the only thing I can do now is hide behind a smile.
