Why smile


If its all over why smile
If its going bed why smile
If we never had a chance why smile
If we cant make it work why smile

If things get tense why smile
If thing get dark why smile
If we cant break through why smile
If theres no way out why smile

Why did M.L.K smile when he knew it was over
Why did Malcom X smile before he got shot
Why did Jay Z smile before he made the song cry
Why did My brother smile at me before saying good bye

Why do Nickey smile at me even thou im the worst ____ ever
Why should I smile
Why smile

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
