A sad man trying to smile,
been humoring for quite awhile.
Fixed smile on my face,
knowing a frown wants its place.
Maybe this is why,
my smile won't cry.

Crazy smile operating,
moving inside dictating.
Affecting all of me,
filling my soul with glee.
A heart pumping blood,
refusing to drown in mud.

Forced into sadness,
fighting all the madness.
Refusing to give in,
knowing it's lose or win.
Stuck on an addiction,
one harboring restriction.

You're not suppose to be happy,
get back to your realm crappy,
Make it real snappy!
I run to the position,
still smiling in opposition.
