CLASSES OF SMILES

Some smiles are kept in files
Enclosed, closed
Never to be opened again
To help their bearers be sane

II
Some smiles can last for a while
Because they were borne from seeds
…watered to gain roots
Pampered to gain stems
And cared for to turn flowers
To blossom till they wilt
And they live on in revival of remembrance

III
Some smiles can travel miles
Because they are made from loving hearts
Planted in genuine hearts
Watered by gratefulness
And farmed into trees
To blossom into fruition
Years after years after years

IV
Some smiles are like light from fireflies
They glow to dim
They’re mostly built on hurts
Out of sadness
From pain
Out of grief
And made to serve as traffic of hope
…or care reception
But they all go to make the ultimate tree smile worth it
So live to receive the ultimate smile
To take you wherever your heart desires

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. :)

Stunningly beautiful work!
Yesterday I asked to send a smiling me and, God have mercy on Kwaku, sorry Lord I I manage that smile. It was a smile though, but just a smile.

This piece about classes of smiles
Is beautiful like tiles,
Amplifying that which is not untrue.
Keep contact with your quill as if with glue
And birth more pieces beautiful like blue.
