Smile, Always!

Look,
LOOK AT THIS.
See these skewed, crooked, chaotic lines.
Yes, these broken lines on barren lands;
These parabolas and hyperbole of disgust.
Ha ha ha! You seem scared.
COME boy, come.
LET me tell, you a story…..
Once upon a time,
There lived a common man.
So common, almost invisible.
Invisible to people.
Oblivious to opportunities.
Unknown to luck.
But.
He smiled:
Day and night.
Summers and winters.
Always.
So,
Nobody cared.
And he managed to secure an existence.
But, with routine rejections,
And constant kicking around,
Depression compromised his smile.
And though, he was common but not weak.
They said: keep going through hell.
He maintained a pace.
They said: accept what comes.
He opened his heart.
They said: smile always.
He tried:
He pushed his cheeks up,
Also with thumbs.
He stretched his lips,
Also with fingers.
He used memories,
Tv, books, tales and jokes.
NOTHING.
JUST AWKWARD LINES.
the vertex then rose with anger.
and with vaporizing hope;
His sanity sublimed.
He took a knife,
Sketched some lines and curves,
And burying the sadness in those clefts;
He sewed the smile in place.
Now he smiled again, always.
So, 
don’t be scared.
See, i am just a common man, 
Going through hell.
But, with a smile, again, always.
Ha ha ha ha ha…….

  1. Very great choice of those pictures to go along with your words.You have a lovely flow of weaving the story and poetry together …
    I am left though with a feeling of sadness about how the smile has to be pulled out or digged into to make it happen …wonder what else could he choose to reach for a bit of joy …
    Beautiful work!

  2. outstanding baba! We watched Suicide Squad recently, and to say the least were very disappointed. I went back and watched the Dark Knight. Heath Ledger’s seminal performance! Jared Leto’s Joker doesn’t hold a fart in the wind to compare. It made me mad!
