Smile a While

A nothingness

A loneliness 

A bottomless

An emptiness…      

Thus the feeling

Glaring at the ceiling


A wait

At a steady rate…


Getting the tingle

Emotion and feeling collides

The feeling subsides.

Emotion resides.

An understanding of life and what it provides


Good Ol’ Mr Marley said it bold:    

"Your life is worth much more than gold"


Sorrow maketh life vile

Don’t carry it another while

Strive for the tingle and smile

Life is longer than its current mile
