Small things

Do you think he's happy,
Sitting alone in that corner?
Do you think he's happy,
Firing at that border?
Do you think she's happy,
Getting rejected all the time?
Do you think she's happy,
Working hours at end? 

If yes, you're mistaken my dear,
Because trust me when I say it couldn't be more clear. 

Their opportunities snatched,
They feel detached. 
And they may keep their shoulders up, and their heads held high 
But not satisfied within. 

There is a clear line of difference 
Between judgment and inference. 
Life can be easy for some,
But a nightmare for others. 

So don't take their smiles for granted 
Neither their love
Nor the twinkle in their eyes. 

It can be hard to share you know,
Love. 
It can blind people, 
Create a mist in front. 
It can be hard to share you know,
Friendship. 
It can bind people,
Make their day. 

One gesture of love,
One of kindness
Is enough to make one happy 
But one gesture of hatred,
One of violence 

Can scar a person for life.
