how often do you laugh?

do your lines
express anguish
or pure bliss?

because you realise
whatever visage
you wear the majority
of the time will reflect
on your outsides

i never used to smile
when i was young
i used to find it posed
and artificial

now i realise
regardless of the pain
or ache in ones
heart -- a smile is the one
thing that will release
an emotion
of pure 
delight
