Smiling Again

Always shy away

Bashful and scared

Scarred in the past

Blessed in the present

Thank God, I’m there

I may not say a lot

My heart knows too well


Unspoken, unsaid

Always misunderstood

Used to quiver & growl

Then, I learned to let it be

Acceptance and gratefulness

I am imperfect and so as they

Pretty faces also aged and rot

But a beautiful soul is timeless

Not threatened by numbers

Only bringing joy to the world

Thanks for smiling again

May my thoughtfulness and generosity

Brings true joy and delight in your heart
