GRATITUDE

SMILE

I smile

As I make the miles

For I’ve known more than a while

And have tasted livers from biles

Like a swift alikoto, I have swirled

Like the boss fishes of some rivers, I have swarm

Like the nightingale with the tinniest vocal chord, I have sang

Some say I am a tortoise, but I’ve had my run

Some say I am a baboon, but I’ve sat in their skies

Some claim I am a loser, but I’ve won their race

No matter their chase

Never have I been dazed

I smile, because earth has given me much

I came with an empty mouth but now it is filled

I came with little fragile bones

But earth has strengthened and stretched

I came with such small skin

But earth has given me much

If I fall in the hands of the vanisher today

I go with much than what I came with

I smile

And I will always smile

I will continuously smile

Until I make all the miles

Gratitude makes rich our files
