If I don't smile,
today would be an endless mile,
if I say today is bad with remorse,
then today is worse,
I better flash a pretty smile,
then that will shorten any one's mile.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

You're Welcome and Thank YOU!!

I wrote a Haiku titled "Smile" but your poem is so much more deep and got so much meaning to it. I like it :)

"Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, imagination encircles the world."

I like this because it shows that the writer is doing something (smiling) for others.

Cool! If we put positive stuff out there, it reaches many people and then we get positive feelings in return. I also love the picture you chose to put with this poem. Great Job!
