Smile


It’s a chilly wind that blows,
but I still smile.

In a world of cold depravity,
injustice,
and strange delusions,
I see the madness for what it is.

Though powerful forces
would accuse
and drag into the muck,
I will not follow suit.
Yesterday’s wrong answer
won’t justify today.

And so I read their words,
hear their voices,
shake my head at folly,
and still smile.

This was written for Three Word Wednesday.

It's the only solution...keeping laughing and smiling....it's a victory in a way. Enjoyed this poem.

It's great if you can still smile.

The foolishness of the world is very difficult to laugh at when so much hurt is newsworthy. The problem is how well bad news sells and travels fast of course and we lap it up glued to our TV screens and even Googling it to be better informed when what we need is less information and to enjoy our lives free of drama.
