The tougher times are the ones you never forget
The times when you cringe out of pain, mental or physical,
The times when nothing seems to go right
The times when the whole world seems to fight!
Those are the times that stay fresh in your mind
No matter how far you have come across
Leaving those painful days; Months or years?
Even a moment of pain is unforgettable, for those who rarely get to taste them!
For those who live in pain forever,
It becomes THE way of life, rather than a moment to pass by.
Pain is, alas, so relative; it is a close one for many!
Who refuse to stay away, and cling on
No matter how good or bad you become!
Time heals, they say, but do they really?
Cause time reminds you of those painful days
The pain remains fresh in the memories
Bringing a tear to your mind and the eyes
It’s only those painful memories that stay fresh
And never the gratitude or the happiness that stayed before and after!
Sometimes I wonder is this to stay longer?
How far or forever?
The moment I feel it may stay back forever
I bring back my smile, as I need it to start my fight!
You cannot share your pain is what they say
But you can, your smile!
I’d rather spread the smile, than the pain
And keep it my secret never to reveal
One day it will get bored, with no one to share
And kill itself in the ocean of smiles!
No more will I have to strain
To bring that smile once more to my face!
But the pain will not end there for sure
As it will stay back in my memories, reminding me
Holding me back from a full smile, fearing,
Will it revive from the same ocean of smile?
Pain can be very painful as the smile can be too!
And pain brings out the better of you, some say
Smile is definitely the better of you,
That you bring out to hide your pain!
It is indeed a vicious friendship, between pain and the smile.
One outshines the other, and brings out the best of the other!
When you are in pain, you tend to smile a lot, to hide it
When you are out of it, you smile, yet you fear the pain
The smile that outshines the fear and pain is heavenly
It’s the smile, Buddha’s smile.
It’s a smile of content, there’s nothing to fear
Done it all, experienced it all!
It is the calm, peace of mind!
The smile that overshadows everything,
Like a child’s innocence or the Buddha’s peace!
That’s the one that never brings you pain
But that’s the most difficult one to attain.
Keep smiling no matter what you feel
Smile is contagious, people say.
It’s better to spread a smile than the pain
The world has enough reasons to worry anyway!
