it’s not about the past. it’s not even about the future. it’s about today. it’s about this moment. because in all reality, this moment, this second, this instant is all we have.

Im always known as
“the happy one”.
No doubt I love being happy,
Yet there’s still something
Strange about it.
Not a day goes by
Without a big smile
Plastered to my face.
It’s like a tatoe
That can never be removed.
Somedays all I want to do
Is tear it off. Show that
I can be weak too.
But then I remember
Everyone that I help:
Stranger I meet on the street.
And then I realize
That I turn their entire day around.
Simply with a smile.
