Every smile becomes a frown,
happy wishes hit the ground.
Joy is lost and never found,
good deeds rarely turn around.
Sorrows fall and keep hearts down,
problems choke without a sound.
Tears drop swiftly till hopes drown,
feeling torn, alone, and bound.
Paint a smile to reset frown,
pick all wishes off the ground.
Search inside till joys are found,
scatter good deeds all around.
Sweep up sorrows that fell down,
fulfillment sings without sound.
Blissful tears can never drown,
peace of mind, free, and unbound.
