Now if there's a smile on my face
It's only there trying to fool the public
But when it comes down to fooling you
Now honey that's quite a different subject
But don't let my glad expression
Give you the wrong impression
Really I'm sad, oh I'm sadder than sad
You're gone and I'm hurtin' so bad
Like a clown I pretend to be glad
Now there's some sad things known to man
But ain't too much sadder than
The tears of a clown, when there's no one around...

After I had been trying so hard to become a better version of myself, well, my classmates, my teachers, my parents ... had becoming more and more demanding.... (long story
) . I started thinking about Perfect Performances.
It seems like all day - everyday, we have to bring a Smiley face to work, despite every feelings we may got, we may be sick, we may have been in a bad break-up ... other bosses and colleagues don't even care. They all seek for perfect performances. Just like an actor or actress, they have to hide their true feelings behind a mask and disguise themselves with their Role-Face.
If we do a bad perform, we could lose our job. If we show our emotion in a competition, we could lose our chances of winning.
As every parts of the world had quickly become a large stage, I could help but wonder:
Can we read a Poker Face ??
Look at my picture, can you tell me my feeling ??
Can you see that I was being Up-side-down ??
