When I grow up,
I want to give smiles.
I don't want to be the kind of person who sits on the curb and glares at people passing by.
I want to be the person spreading joy,
Giving smiles.

I don't want to write sad poetry,
Cooped up in my room all day,
Pouring out my sad emotions in my writing,
Making sad poetry.

I want to make happy poetry,
Poetry that makes people laugh and giggle.
No more sadness.
Only smiles.

Favorite Quote:
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

You know whenever I see so much as a glimpse of the word "Smile" anywhere I jump right to it..I don't know why really....I love your poem though and I love the way you want to give smiles. ME TOO! Never-stop-writing!
