A smile



How does a smile get in to the eyes?

Untrusting of ever-shifting faces.

The frowns with no compassion knitted between the eyebrows.

Judgement pressed between the barred teeth of a smile.

You can only trust the smiles which live in the eyes.

But how do you put a smile in to somebody else’s eyes?

A smile of the mouth is easily placed but to force a smile to reach the eyes is near impossible.

Victory is when you see the eyes of another alight, as true joy cleanses their soul and transcends the mere upturning of a mouth, in to a golden radiance touching those around them.
