When a smile lights up a face,
Warms the soul, leaves a trace,
Joy and happiness fit the bill.
Sometimes misery adds a chill,
Frown and glower sets the face,
For despair we have to brace.
Try to find the bud of hope,
Nurture it expand its scope,
Don’t rail about the tides of fate,
Or sour yourself with dishes of hate.
Look inside for inner peace
Celebrate every kindness feat.
When a smile lights up a face
Joy beams out and adds some grace.
