Smile Away The Pains - Poem by Leonard Akwo

the shivers in your teeth
from the cold wind blowing still
the wrinkles in your face
from the harsh sun piercing deep
those rivulets of tears
running the in the still of the night
sometimes makes life pains seem so real
i know its all true
in spite of all
you can go through them all
just when you can smile away the pains
