Smiles of Pain, A Poem By Liberian Teen Poet, Aloysius S. Harmon Jr
My body is like a vault of pains
Deeply sculptured With laughter
And unbearable sadness.
My heart may hop to the happy noise
of the street,
But my mind has been flown
And left alone in the backyard of unhappiness.
Wholly in my stunning face
Are wounds of hurtful laugh
Oozing out the blood of painful smiles.
My eyes, dripping salty fluids
But silence won’t make you believe.

"...I am the voice of reason,
That dance not to the deceitful tone
Of political eloquence and propaganda
I am the voice above religious hypocrisy and sycophancy
Truth is my warrant and change is my cause..."
