Smile - Poem by Verbaas Mij

This is not a drill,
Please fasten your safety belts and restore your trays to their full upright and locked position.
Dig into thoughts and memories until you've found power.
Inner strength and the will to go on.
Find the lingering smell that makes you think of that time...
Look for the color that sparks the memory about...
Show the world the person that can make you smile no matter what.
Please keep all body parts away from the closing doors and prepare for take off.
You know that in all darkness you will find a match to light.
Conquer the fear of heights and ghosts.
Take the shot of courage and march on through fire.
Accomplish what you know you can do,
It only takes a fraction of happiness and a moment of your time.
Short and sweet with power in your footsteps,
March to your own beat and rhythm.
Excite the flip flops beneath you and fly on hermes wings.
Your time to shine is now, and aim light at shadows.
Light will shine on a broken mirror in the corner,
It will reflect light and show you every piece it has to offer.
Accept the offerings and be glad in this.
This is a smile creeping across your face,
And this is not a recording.
