A smiling warrior

She was an epitome of happiness

She smiled at every difficulty

she was a chatterbox when she was upset

She  smiled even in pain

she hid her pain even in vain

She was betrayed 

She was fooled

She was crushed 

She was thrown away

yet she walked on

without revealing her pain

she was a warrior

a warrior who fought with all her heart

she prayed silently, hiding away all the pain

underneath her skin, she hid her scars

a smiling warrior.
