Worth A Smile


Beneath the lonely stars
Surrounded by uncomfortable silence
Not knowing where you stand
Trying to keep your balance

Mixed in shades of gray and black
Hoping that rain will wash the pain away
Moments like these never seem to fade
Emotions that make you feel betrayed

Hope seems like a thousand miles afar
Cloaked in a state of seculsion
Time is wasting and your heart is at war
Peculiar is life with its uncontrollable destiny

Never give up that hope
Make the journey worth the while
At the end it will brighten your integrity
Even if it is just worth a smile
