A Smile This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

   Smiling isinfectious
    You catch it like theflu

When someone smiled at
Me today, I startedsmiling too

I passed around
The corner, and someonesaw my grin

When he smiled I
Realized, I'd passed iton to him

I thought about
that smile, then Irealized its worth,

A single smile, just like
Mine,could travel around the earth.

So, if you feel asmile
Begin, don't leave it undetected -

Let's startan epidemic
Quick and get the world infected!
