who am i cheating when i smile.......for slam behind the curtain


Its been said that to understand

another ...

you must walk a mile in shoes not yours

but belonging to

the other.......

so I thought about the walk, and going the

extra mile, and I've since began to


who I'm cheating when I smile.......

the literal walk is symbolic,'cause theres neither

a time nor place, but walks for

those we strive to know.......

clearly show upon our face....we want to help we need to know,

we want to go the extra mile, but still it comes down, to

those we relate to, and those we're cheating when we smile.....
