Just Smile


deepest breath wait a while
to simile more than i can smile
tribulation on my way like a rolling stone
to its storms, i smile because it will soon be gone
they can never ever stay
they are road signs to direct your way
its appearance will get you frightened
standing on your grounds gets you enlightened
its corridors full of sadness which will get you sinking
keep moving with a positive thinking
no matter the cause of it never cry
constant focus and aim high
strength, might and power can't defeat troubles
pick hope and endurance as your marbles
trials can pull you down
but can never ever hold you down
get up
take a nap
move on again
for no pain no gain.
just smile as much as you can smile.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
