Smile

By , Haymarket, VA
They say a picture
Is worth
A thousand words.

But to see
Someone smile,
It’s such a simple thing.

As if all their emotions,
All the things they
Were hiding underneath
The surface
Don’t matter
Anymore.

And it feels fantastic
To make someone you love
Smile.
And it makes you
Want to smile yourself.

And even though
Life is crazy,
And hard to understand,
It’s all worth it
When you and all the people
That you love
Take time to laugh,
And talk,
And create memories together.

So don’t be afraid
To show emotion
Don’t be afraid to cry
To laugh
To dance
To be afraid,
As long as you remember,
To smile.
