kneeling behind a grave stone
smiling for the pictures

Every smile,
every touch
and every word
we ever shared were
poems unto themselves.
I am smiling,
        An exercise I do with mouth
My teeth clear white.

I am smiling,
        Looking so happy
What a perfect disguise.

I am smiling,
        what a beautiful day to
have all my sad thoughts come for me.

I am smiling,
         It is a practice
an ongoing progressive learning.

I am smiling,
          There is absolutely nothing I can do
Here, I smile to you too.
It never occurred that in order to live one will have to
preserve one's pain
That smiling may come at the cost of repaying its debts

I am happy
I am sad
I am jealous
I am mad

To tear my gaze away.
I read all day
In preparation.

And I smiled,
Without regard to if

the more I endure
the more it hurts
the more I smile
the better it gets
because every smile
has the power
to uplift the pain and sorrows
keeping smiling please, smile your way through it all and never give in to the pain that lingers within....

Days pass,
I lay in despair.
But as night takes charge,
I believe God will make repairs.
My life may be hopeless,
Running on cheap cigarette smoke,
But I was once a little smiling  girl,
And I will be her,I will be her,once more.
