I know how sadness can make you feel ashamed in front of many. And I know how it could change a once happy person. Do you know how it feels? Have you seen someone who feels and looks like it?
I've seen many of them, and I regret that I didn't know how to change what they feel. I've known it, but I never knew how to cure it. The pain will always remain in their hearts. And that no matter how hard I try, it will never vanish.
Just like mine, it's still here. And I always knew how it felt. I guess I only learned to hide it. Many of us do. And when somebody sees it, we feel grateful no matter how we deny it. Not everyone can see the pain of a person.
It's hard to see when somebody conceals it. In my case, I did not want to let others know. I want them to believe that everything is fine and that I am okay. I didn't want everybody to worry about how I feel, so I gave the sweetest smile I could.
It's the best thing that I could do to make everyone feel assured that everything is fine. Yes, it's about concealing the truth, but I'm lying for a reason. I don't want the people around me to feel sad too. And I know anybody would understand me.
I think some people are like that too. They pretend to be the happiest person, when in fact, they aren't. And I know that it's because they don't want anybody to feel the same. They wanted everybody to see only the good ones.
People like that are precious. They know how others would feel because they care. Appreciate them if you get to meet someone like that. Don't you think they deserve it?

Why do you think people conceal the sadness in their hearts? Have you met a person with the sweetest smile? How did you feel?
