Smile #2: JUSTICE

My Response to Poets United's Midweek Motif:
JUSTICE or POETIC JUSTICE

Spring flowers here in Silver Spring, MD (USA).



You know I've lost much due to my fears
you know I've suffered for years and years
for too long I've held my breath
for so long I've wished for death

But you gave me hope
You helped me grow
You believed in me so...

this happiness I feel?
is happiness that's real
it's justice for the times I've dealt
with lies, hate, and hell.

You know I've stressed for so many nights
cause I chose humility and did what was right
for too long I've bled inside
for too long I've looked for a sign

Then you gave me hope
You helped me grow
You believed in me so...

this happiness I feel?
is happiness that's real
it's justice for the times I've knelt
in church for God's help.

this happiness I feel?
It's justice for all my struggles
It's justice for all my sorrows
I deserve all this joy and hope.

this happiness I've found?
Is justice for all my frowns
Is justice for all my downs
I deserve this blessing and crown.

You deserve your blessing and crown...

Smile #1: OPTIMISTIC


At the moment I am fine
laughing, smiling, feeling high
forward is the word you know

At the moment all is right
good people and good times 
forward is all I know



ooh...I'm happy, moving on
ooh...Life's so sunny, nothing's wrong

I'm not hopeless, I'm so blessed
My graces are limitless
I'm optimistic--oh yes!

I no longer need to weep
I am living my dreams
I am perfect in God's eyes

I no longer lose my sleep
God and Science both help me
Life is perfect in their lights

ooh...I'm happy, moving on
ooh...Life's so steady, nothing's wrong
I'm not hopeless, I'm so blessed
My gifts are limitless
I'm optimistic--oh yes! 

Tell myself no worries
I can make it just believe
Don't give up so easily
Tell myself I don't need
to be in bad company
Get out and achieve!

I'm optimistic--oh yes!
