Keep Smiling

Its not falling that keeps us courageous  
It is smiling that behold us
Its not tears that speaks for our sadness
It is smiling beyond our pain and tears
Then comes the voice of anger on a double rages  
It is smiling that hold us against our weakness
Thoughts of revenge submits
Within the spells of forgiveness
Yet the heart does not  forget the trails
It can not help it but being cautious  
But bravely smiling to uplift us  
Parading true colours 
Life is over-daring; one has to stand beating falls 
We keep smiling to keep us simply courageous

Hi, Nasra.

It’s the falling which keeps us standing again stronger on our feet.

It is the tears which cleans and lubricates our eye lids, so we can see more clearly.

It is the Smile which sores away our pain, gives us courage to forget, and move forward.

It is the bad experience which opens up the window, for better future.

Heart is the archiving space, where we store all good and bad experiences, for us to refer at whenever we are in need of motivation, to move us ahead.

I tried making my face into a smile even though there was no particular reason. Amazingly, it made me feel better to do this.
Nice poetry my friend.
