Smile for a while even if it's so disgusting.

--

Your lips forgot how . . . simply, like an old beat up rusting.

To close our eyes and breathe in some free love.

No payment, a grace from Above.

--

Dear heart life will throw you something to smile at sweetly

Listen to the birds chirping their melodies discreetly.

Breathe in a little more air as if by magic soft breezes, hugs from up there!

--

Only if you risk and jump the tightrope with no safety net, just bare.

Peter Pan taught Wendy and her brothers to believe!

When they did their wings grew and their hearts felt relieved.

If only people understood there are fairies watching waiting to sprinkle, sprinkle . . .

You'd close your eyes shut and believe, the alarm bells ring: Tickle! Tickle.

So easy to drown in a comfy warm cesspool.

But then you drown and smell the pong, so cruel.

Just wash yourself off like a dolphin cascading through waves in the sea.

Close your eyes and visualise it is you living your destiny.

Free!

Without uncertainty.

Turn shackles into arms of strength!

Experience is an ingredient when the Art of War goes its length.

Start with you . . .

He who feels so blue.

Erase yesterday like you say.

And let happiness and joy tickle you everyday . . . the feeling will stay.
