Hope, Happiness and Life.

What do you want from life?

I hope tomorrow that I’ll have the perfect house.
A loving family, a caring spouse.
Tomorrow is what hope brings to me.
I hope tomorrow I’ll be better financially.
I’ll lead a normal life, maybe a few ups and downs.
That my life has colors, not just white and grey.
I hope that I have an AC, a car, a phone.
I hope that I go on and on and on.
I hope that I have a long way to go.
Accomplishing everything as I go.
Tomorrow, I hope comes to me.
It’s all a part of life. You see, I just want to be happy.

Oh, Wait,
There’s the difference between you and me.
I’ve seen real life difficulty.
While you hope for a house, a car,
There are some who sleep beneath the stars.
While you hope for an AC in the summers,
There are people who go empty stomached.
While you hope for an even better life,
I’ll give up anything to trade your life.
So maybe, you shouldn’t say that to me.
Because what little you have is everything to many.
Be happy with what you have, not sad because of what you need.
Think of others, help them before you wish for betterment. You’ll see,
Life will surprise you with what you wish.
Make it your goal to make someone’s life rich.
Making someone’s tomorrow better that today.
Because that’s what true happiness is.

The Simple Curve- Smile.

DSC_00551

If there’s anything in the world that sets everything right,
The curve of the lips, between a fight.
The toothless grin makes the heart light.
You can’t contain it, can’t hold it tight.
It’s cheaper than the cheapest for all crude and caste.
It escapes violently, it’s durable, it lasts.
Willingly though it fights anger,
Like a true soldier, it never surrenders.
It’s contagious, even more than a disease.
It bring comfort, familiarity and ease.
A small smile, however it may be, does miracles.
It’s sweeter than candy, not sour as pickle.
The smile can have all wars cease.
The smile never fails to please.
A smallest angle than can change the world.
However we dismiss it, “It’s absurd.”
A smile brings hope, nurtures it.
It’s like medicine, work bit by bit.
It’s a tool that revives men from life,
Worse than Dante’s purgatory before paradise.
It’s the worst seeker, draws attention,
Of pure admiration, awe, not pretension.
Thus, a small curve it is, and sets things right,
It’s contagious. It brings happiness and delight.
