a smile is a simple gesture
it does not require much
it’s a product of our happiness
that illuminates us
it's important to smile when no one else does
because, believe it or not, it penetrates right into our hearts
it breaks down all those walls that are so tightly screwed
and opens doors of happiness that are finally used
it reaches the heavens and makes the whole world sing
It's an enchanting thing.
So don't look away or ignore
Just smile at someone.
What are you waiting for?
