Smile - Poem by PHUMLA KHANYILE

Though it rains so hard
The winds blow too high
With chilly storms from afar
Smile though it pains you great

Wear your coat of many colours
Though tattered your soul
Its radiance shall cover your pain
The world shall not see you crumble

These tears will not drown you whole
No matter how bruised your petals
Though it aches from head to toe
Smile through the rise and fall

There will always be a reason
This may not to be your season
And the odds are but rising
Smile for you are still standing

Of all the things you can loose
Dare not let go of your smile
What will you be without your shield?
Smile and heal your broken shell
