Smile

Smile

A Poem by 1Disawsum
"

It's all we can do. A sad face never helped anybody, but a small smile, a small act of kindness and appreciation towards somebody else, can. Smile! :)

"
What else is there to do
But put on a happy smile,
Even when you're sad,
Because nothing can fix up,
Your problems.

What else is there to do,
But smile and try
To spread a smile on others
Sad days, because there's nothing
To fix your hole.

And by hoping to spark up
Somebody else's day,
Who knows what life you've saved?
Who knows if they were suicidal that day,
And your smile lifted the dark over the light?

Whatever is lost can be found
Sometimes with help by others.
What else can we do, but try to smile,
And hope to make others happy.
Smile.

It's all we can do.

A smile to somebody can make a big difference to their world. It might not fix the world's issues, or your problems, but it may help lift somebody else's sadness. Big to small, start smiling girls and guys!

I agree.
"Whatever is lost can be found
Sometimes with help by others.
What else can we do, but try to smile,
And hope to make others happy.

You are welcome.
I read a quote somewhere,

When life gives you a hundred
reasons to cry
show life that you have a thousand reasons to smile.

Great lines, must be followed by everyone.
Your poem was very good.
A good poem with a great message.

I liked this poem. And indeed, I couldn't agree more with this idea. A smile can actually make a lot of difference. Not only to others but to oneself too. It may not give a solution but it definitely gives hope and strength to fight through something that drives us into our dark sides. I loved this poem. Thanks for sharing. :)

1Disawsum: I love your poem and you are so right! A small act of kindness can be such a gift. Thank you for reminding me and I do so hope many others will read your poem. Life can be so hard at times, and we never, ever know what problems others may be going through. I recall many times being so uplifted by just that: A smile. Thank you so much. Very well written, great wording, flows beautifully and the message is powerful. Dale

You're welcome...loved it!
But put on a happy smile,
Even when you're sad,
Because nothing can fix up,
Your problems.

A smile, when someone is offmood, can change the view of life.
It is true and beautifully crafted one.
Like it, enjoy it.
