Have You Wanted To Smile - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Have you wanted to smile,
When you were crying?
Just to grin fo a while,
While your heart was dying.

To let a faint shadow,
Cross your face,
So that no one would know,
How your heart did race.

To look everyone square in the eye,
Even though you soul was aching,
So that others looks you might defy,
Even while your heart was breaking.
