A choice

To be the noise

The voice

Or live in the joys

And rejoice adds to his many apparels


The smile, could be a veil

The smile, could be a nice mask

The smile, could be a nice cologne

Hiding the scents of ache,

Insanities, yearnings for goodness, trials and tribulations


Most times, like a happy bird,

He chooses the veil of a smile

Most times, like a fiery bird,

He chooses the veil of smile

To pleasantly deceive not only beings but himself of happiness



Sometimes, like an outing clothe

He chooses the veil of smiles

Sometimes, like an expensive make-up,

He chooses the veil of smiles;

The treasure all need and some yearn for



Sometimes, as the comforter

He puts on the veil of smile

Sometimes, to relieve tensions

He puts on the sweet cologne of smiles

Sometimes to relieve the soul, he swims in the rivers of smile

He simply chooses that path to rejoice in the voice of smiles

Or like clothes, buys many facial coverings of infectious smiles

We can all take that path or get those fabrics to sow

Just a simple Ghanaian trying to find the best in our society. I may be fun, I may be interesting, I may be funny, I may even be foolish or intelligent, but it is all based on the mood in which you find yourself. I believe our minds make us who we are. Know that, pain, no matter its 'unbearability', is transient. Unburden or delight yourself for a while in my writings please. And all corrections, advice and opinions are welcome. Know that you are the king, queen or royal on this blog. :)
