The Smiling Man

Beneath his impenetrable

and well constructed

facade,

boils a cauldron

of self-doubt.

Fueled by the flames

of hopelessness

and failures.

The aroma of

sweet success

fills the air

but it is not his own.

His cauldron,

emits the sweaty smell

of defeat.

On the other side

of his shield,

his perpetual smile

remains.

Unflappable.
