One smile at a time.

Can we change
the world
one smile
at a time?

A smile can overcome
the darkest of days,
with the strength of
ten armies brave.

A smile can put away
hatred and anger,
with the subtlety
of dimples and
polite conversation.

That is to say,
a smile
may linger
for a little while longer.

So, we have all reason
to be thankful of,
lessons learned
from past hurts
that have become
embroidered
onto the fabric
of our hearts.

Yet, also serving
as a long-time reminder
to let go of each
and every care,
that we wear.

Our vulnerability
becomes our strength.
As, the battle cries of liberty
arise in perfect symmetry.

Yet, can we
change
the world,
one smile
at a time?
