To Smile Is a Lovely Thing


Smiling and being cheerful is something which I really wish to do
Unhappiness, often goes on to weaken a lot
Being depressive is really not a nice thing
Although, the reality is that we do not always have control over sorrow
It is an unpredictable travel of plenty emotions
Things can make us shake off tears though just be stiff as joy will someday arrive
We have one life and can make it a good experience
Till I am alive, my effort will be to grin
Even though my teeth are not so white and they do not shine
Still, in this life I will smile by wishing that someone will go on to understand my hurt, as well as all my fears
To smile is a lovely thing, even though I am not as beautiful as the rest
Still, my heart and facial expressions will display a glow
Hopefully someone will interpret and love me as I am.
