Smile

Smile,
Always!
For a smile,
Brightens your day.
You need no reason;
Give one and you’ll receive,
A lot of them in return.
The best gift that you can give anyone,
The best gift that you can ever receive,
Smile,for you are alive, smile for it is free!

    That's quite a challenge. Only way to do it is to be proficient in writing, which clearly you are.

    I can never get get the hang of poetry specially ones like this where you have to count syllables and make sense at the same time. This is so good.

    Oh, my, that's challenging and fun! And smile, yeah it is free, I agree, but it takes immense strength to smile when you are not up for it. But it could brighten up someone's day so we shall smile. 🙂
