Smile, It'll Make You Feel Better.

Location

When there is nothing left to do,

I smile.

not an ordinary smile though.

It’s contagious.

Infecting everyone around.

Soon the whole room embraces the same type of grin.

One that says,

            “Hey we’ll make it through this .”

Although mine was g a p pe d

            & ja

                        gg

                                    ed

& uneven,

It had the same affect.

Just because it went through

Metal & For 5. Years.

doesn't mean it changed it’s

POWERS.

 

A smile

Is my go to

Heal-all,

Make-everything-better,

I-am-totally-fine-&-put-together

Cover up.

 

 

 

My “cover up” though,

Gave me super powers.

Powers that strive for positive

Never for negative.

 

My smile invokes PRIDE.

It’s not pearly white

Or 

Perfect...

But it’s mine &

mine alone.

It’s genuine

            &

Honest.

Never shying from a challenge

Or cowering in fear.

Nor does it shrink

|...in deep trenches…|

It shows

“I’m confident”

&

“I’ll be okay.”

 

My smile & I

We’ve been dangled

Over a monster

with jagged rocks as teeth,

...and survived.

 

Whether it was straight

or crooked,

it’s the same smile

that illuminates

dark hallways.

Deterring shadows &

Demons.
