JUST A SMILE???


Spreading my wings when I wanted to fly ,
I was told I couldn't,
I craved for it day and night
but I couldn't
I dreamt of it watching birds fly but
I couldn't
And When I could fly,
I realized that all this time
what I longed for
was not at all the purpose of mine.
Now I wanted to shine
like a Prima Donna in the light
And wanted to be a trail brazer in the night
I struggled for it ,breaking all mores
Just to sing one day, the song of success in chorus
And that day came ,yaa it came
Just to book itself in the history's name.
I realized that all this time
I was running behind a fake kaliedoscope
Now I had shekels,I had fame but I wanted something out of scope.
But what?
Then I saw a child who had no arms,
she was smiling and dancing in her own tune.
She had everything and I had none
I was shocked
I Felt pitty on me..You know why?
Because I realized that all this time, I longed for a genuine SMILE.

This poem is dedicated to a common man or woman who forgets to smile in course of its journey in life.
Yes smile and happiness are the two things that we all crave for but never realize.
So smile often and pass it on.Spread smiles and your world will automatically smile.Take life as it comes.
Always remember
""Smile is a curved line that puts everything straight""

    "Smile is a curved line that puts everything straight"..

  19. So true....A smile is not just about flexing some muscles...a smile becomes a smile when your heart smiles..just watch for the twinkle between the same set of lips when the heart smiles.. it has a charm of its own..
