Not very poetic – but in other words, “Snap out of it!” lol Hope this day is treating you well, John 🙂
Exactly! Force a smile if necessary. 🙂 There’s a breath in my lungs so I’m being treated relatively well. Hope all is well with you.
I like your optimism! Hope you have a great weekend 🙂
Don’t know how you found your way to my blog. But I sure am glad you did.Love the poems here. . I may not leave a comment on each one I read , for I’m rushing through this time. Will come back 🙂
Thank you for visiting. I look forward to more from you in the future.
Well thank you so much for the visit! I’m glad I found you as well! Hope to see you again soon! 🙂
Preach that positivity! Nice.
Thank you! It’s great to meet you!
Right back atcha.
I love it John wake up we are all bozos on this bus
Yes we are, Sheldon. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our own worlds though.
That ought to get any Gloomy Gus to smile. Or not. Sometimes a Gloomy Gus enjoys being gloomy.
I admit I can be a Gloomy Gus too. I guess I may have written this as much as a reminder to myself as to anyone else. 🙂
As long as you don’t revel in it….
No revelry but sometimes it is what it is I guess. 🙂
Fantastic! I must remember this one when people are like that and send them straight over to read
Thanks! I hope it helps. 🙂
Sending a smile to all who see this! =)
Thank you! We need smiles. 🙂
Reblogged this on Through Knowledge Gain Power Ltd.
Thank you so much for the reblog!
Thanks. I needed that. Sending a virtual smile out to everyone.
Thanks, Karen! We can all use a smile! 🙂

Another poet always has the answer. Sending out my virtual smile to my virtual but very real friends.
Thanks for the reblog!
Always. Thanks, Jay! It’s great to meet you!
Can you see it?
I can see and it’s wonderful to see a smiling face! 🙂
Very true, you’d be shocked how a single smile can change someone else’s day. 🙂
It can change someone’s day completely! You’re right.
Dare I ask who this is about…I do hope it’s not your doctor?
It’s actually about the grumpy faces I see out in public so often. When strangers are all just trying to get through a store, deal with life or their problems, they’re often helpful and smiling while some just act pissed off at all of us. I just want them to interact as much as they can like the rest of us try to.
I like the end, the smile. You never know when it will change a persons day. Thanks for the poem–I linked it on my site.
Thank you very much! A smile goes a long way especially the ones that are hardest and have to be forced a little.
I really like the optimism here and the simple language. This made my day 😀
Thank you! 🙂 It’s great to meet you!
Great to meet you too!
I really liked this poem. Wish more people would take your advice. Great job!
Thank you! We can all smile more. It’s great to meet you!
I’m tempted to send a link to this to all the miserable souls I’ve come across over the past few days 🙂
It’s unfortunate that there are a lot of miserable people out there. We all deal with something but it’s being out among others when we need to put all that aside for a few minutes and try to be kind and share a smile with a stranger. It sure does lift the spirits. 🙂
Thank you! 🙂 It’s great to meet you!

Thank you for the reblog!
Not a problem at all
Reblogged this on AG's Blog.
Thanks for the reblog!
Your poem peaks from the heart and…. to the heart! Reblogged on my site. Thank you for visiting it by the way!
Thank you! 🙂
You are welcome! And of course it was supposed to say “speaks” not “peaks” 🙂
No problem. 🙂
I like your poems! 🙂
Thank you, Charydel! 🙂 It’s great to meet you!
Never underestimate the power of a smile, it might not lessen your pain or sadness, but it may give others hope, to smile. “Share a smile” strong words 👍🏼
A single smile does go a long way.
Ain’t it the truth, John, ain’t it the truth? Thanks for stopping by and following me. 🙂
You’re welcome and thank you, Sherrie! I’m glad you dropped in and left a comment. It’s great to meet you!
Likewise, John. We writers need to encourage each other! 🙂
Yes we do! I agree! 🙂
Hi John! Popping in very belatedly to say hi and many thanks for the follow. 🙂
You’re welcome and thank you for dropping in, Johanna! It’s great to meet you!
So simple and so true.
Thank you, Bob! 🙂
As often as possible. 🙂 It’s great to meet you!
