Smile

Smile

Smile as much as you can
under the shawl
for in this world
there is a lot to cry for
and it isn’t anything small

It behooves us all
to roll up our sleeves
to keep on performing
our own miracles
in a steady and firm
brisk pace
always with a smile
on our face

It has been seen over
and over again
there is no supernatural force
that we may ascertain
causing our disaster
Just in ourselves is the source
This has been proven
in ways that cannot be vaster

It is a simple truth
and not a discovery gem
miracles we create ourselves
and there aren’t any gods
to magically send them

All the follies of the world
derive from
vainglory
greed
desire to control
and egotism
If we follow them
we will lose it all

Paradise and wealth
are baits
that throw us into ruin
Your smile
calamities exterminates
and of a sound life
is the tambourine
that helps us all
not to do in

Smile as much as you can
under the shawl
for in this world
there is a lot to cry for
and it isn’t anything small
