One thing I love to do in my spare time is to write poetry. It relaxes me and I feel so much better after I have put it on paper. A trip to the mall inspired me to write this poem.
As I wandered through the mall I thought to myself “Wow, there are a lot of miserable people around.” Everyone I passed was frowning and to tell the truth on that particular day I didn’t meet anyone with a smile on their face. Even the Sales Associate, in the store I went into couldn’t muster up a smile. “What is wrong with everyone?” I asked myself. “Is everyone that miserable, I guess so?”
You would be surprised at how many people I gave a smile to and they completely ignored me or turned their head away. It seemes to me that it is very sad world we live in!
On your face don’t ever wear a frown
Or you’ll bring everyone around you down.
Instead that frown with a smile replace
And wear it with pride upon your face.
Smile, smile, as through life you go
For it will make you feel better you know.
For when you smile you will always win
Because a smile can turn, into a grin.
For anyone that is looking your way
A big beautiful smile will make their day.
And even if they wonder what you have to smile about
It will still make them feel much better there is no doubt.
Because there is no cost for a smile you see
For smiling will always, always be FREE!
Even Pets Smile!
Have you ever looked at your pet and think that they are smiling at you? Well guess what, they likely are. I have seen dogs, cats and horses smile and of course we know what a beautiful smile a dolphin has. I have caught our dog with a smile on her face. Animals have great expressions and they show they are pleased by smiling.
