Don’t groan, grin

Why do you grin
in pain with crack-
led lips
when friends are near?

Why do you smile
at sun
when miles remain
you reach a goal?

Why don’t you frown
at crossroads missed?

Cause, grins,
are lubri-
cants, contagious joy,
They are life itself.


I felt I had to rehabilitate the grin. Join us with Quadrilles (44 words exactly) at dVerse. You just have to grin today.
