Povery, war, hatred, greed.
Smiles fade as does bliss
In this life today, it is all we see.
If only I had one wish.
When tears outweigh the fall of rain
And the act of smiling becomes a myth,
When blood of a broken heart leaves stains
And the strongest has no more strength.
I will then be deemed a criminal
If trying to change is a crime.
I will proudly accept the label of cynical
For changing the world one smile at a time.
