Smile

Smile

A Poem by Ethel
"

You don't need a perfect atmosphere, before you can truly smile

"
Smile, and never mind the flaws
Reveal the broke, serrate egdes
Of your finely buttered teeth
You don't need a perfect sphere
Before you can truly smile

What is perfect but curved lips,
That bears down on tongue divide
And the glow in star-spangled eyes?
The issue is not in life defects
But that many forget to smile

Smile and everyone smiles with you.

i hope so because flaws are what make us unique and beautiful in our own ways.

Exactly.

You know emotions are infectious. So, it's better to spread joy, than pain
