I keep smiling

Updated on September 28, 2011


No matter what happens I keep a smile on my face


If I’m hurting inside I don’t let anyone see a trace


I’m so silly, crazy, hilarious and nuts


I’ll make you laugh so hard you’re gonna feel it in your guts


Even if I’m dying inside I know how to stay alive


Act a fool but still be cool is how I’ve learned to survive


It doesn’t matter what you do to me, even if you break my heart I’m not gonna show it


If you push my buttons, if you get under my skin, you’ll get no satisfaction if I never let you know it.


I’m like weebles I’ll wobble but I’ll never let you get me down


God forbid I let you pity me by ever showin you a frown


I keep that grin from ear to ear and find amusement in every trial


The most important thing I’ve learned is too never let anyone take my smile

      Life has made you tough. I try to hide my emotions but I have never been able. At some point it comes off as lying and I in fact find myself lying because people will see something is not right in my eyes. "Oh no everything is right as rain." Liar. So if they see something, I tell them what I am praying for and what faith I have in Jesus to take care of it. I don't go to pieces over it anymore. Neither do I care if anyone knows because it is Jesus' fight, not mine. To the believer it is a call to prayer. To the unbeliever it is a witness of faith to a God they don't believe in but should. Great hub Jack.
