George Egba


The Power Of A Smile


Childhood is history
Teenage life is temporal
Adolescent final territory
Three anniversaries live a ceremony
Yet it does not guarantee a smile
Goodbye dear yesterday and the past
Welcome today decorated in the present
Patient hope for tomorrow the future
Never be too sure of a smile
Today some roots sprang
While others soon will wither
We must live when it is up
Or die when it is down
It is not tiding man is meant for pain
When it come our smile fade away
All faces will look good in their smile
But while some appreciate this
Others refuse to negotiate it
Lips meant for our smile are not yet parted
As no day is perfect without a cry
We all need a better place
The only way to a better place is our smile's
A single smile from infants teen and adults
Is enough to end our wars
People look alike when they smile
Smile is the language we all understand
And when we smile we are one
