Philosophy Statement- A smile is a really powerful thing. It may not seem like it, but that one little action could have a huge effect on a person, and can brighten someones day. So no matter how terrible things seem, just smile, pull through, and everything will be ok.

The power of anger

Can rise inside until it tears you apart,
You're nuts, I swear to God
But the power of a smile
Can heal a frozen heart.

Sustain'd and soothed

There is nothing that adds more beauty to a face
Draw your lips together
And lift up the ends
A message of goodwill
A gift of Love

You might find
When you smile
The whole world stops and stares for a while
Lucky just to linger in its light

Free as a bird
And spirit flying
Just keep on
JuSt kEEp on Smiling

When nothing feels all right
You feel tired
You feel weak,
Wish that you could cry
Like you just wanna give up
And you just want to

You gotta search within you
Find that inner strength
What are you waitin' for?

I think I'm cured
Smiling is my favorite
In fact, I'm sure
I just like to smile
Instead of the gallows
Of heartache that hang from above.

Thank you stranger
For your therapeutic smile
You caught me
From going over the edge
And into depression.
You brought me back
I see the world

With just one simple gesture
I have given you my soul
What a splendid present

I absolutely love it
When you smile
