a smile


a little black girl

with her mother on the train

so excited in telling her mother

about her day in school

as she got off

she smiled at me

i smiled back

all it took was a smile

that smile brought life to my veins

igniting inspiration

to conquer the hardships

that lies in front of me

i thank that little black girl

for smiling at me

all it took was a smile
