When I Smile
My smile does not mean am problem free
Its not that i am frivolous with it
not that i don't brood with my own issue
not that i am not concerned
Its not that the best is happening to me:
Not that my pains are not real.
I smile to give you courage and hope and strength
I smile to conceal my stress and to relax my fear
I smile because i have decided to.
