smile

smile
it ain’t easy to smile
yet try O beggar and smile
and the world will smile
cry and they leave you alone

Ain’t it better to be alone
live in one’s misery

or perhaps tis better
to burn the tears
fake a smile
and be with the fake crowd

life has little meaning
as it is
in this crowd
in this maddening crowd

life has little meaning
as it is
in this loneliness
in these screaming silences
