10,000 smiles

March 19, 2019

We have an abundance here
With every tick-tock
We having thick talk
About happiness.

There’s a whole lot of self-love quotes flying around
Happiness promoting woke statements too
So I tell you, friend,
We have an abundance of it here.

Don’t let the default on rents fool you
Or a kid’s school fees rants clue you
I implore you not to be cajoled to concluding
Based on an apartment wherein no one is employed.

You can’t possibly say it resides in these notes
The currencies most against their will don’t have currently
Common, don’t be petty, happiness comes from within not material things
And I tell you pal, over here, we have 10,000 smiles!

We pacify ourselves into pains the more
We painting sanity on warped mentality
And when we are stylishly giving up, leaving things to fate
We call it staying positive.

We have it in abundance, it’s all we care to give
Even when losing grip of our faith
10,000 smiles
But not a true one in sight.
