smile


Smile
For sadness is weakness
Show an inch
And they will rip off a mile
Smile
Let them know
You are not scared
You are prepared
For whatever the may throw
No matter how vile
Smile
For if you do
They will respect you
Be afraid
Sneak your way in
And they will be your child
So smile
do not cry
Or sigh
No matter how many times you die
You can’t kill them if you’re hostile
But you can kill them with a
smile

    'No matter how many times you die
    You can’t kill them if you’re hostile
    But you can kill them with a
    smile'

    You did a pleasant job with smile.
    How smile can act positively even in an adverse situation.
    This moving approach of the poem is for the ends of mankind.
    Therefore a smiling 10 is added from me to this piece with satisfaction. (Report) Reply

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
