Smiling is infectious, you can catch it like the flu.
When somenone smiled at me today, I started smiling too.
I turned around the corner and saw my own grin, When he smiled
I realized I had passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile, then understood its work.
A single smile just like mine, could travel round the earth.
So if you see a smile begin, don't leave it undetected.
Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the world infected.

    Hmm I love the last two line, you know what my friend once told me that a smile is the cheapest make up that anyone can wear, it cost nothing but causes great things. Keep writing… this is a soul lifting piece, I will always cherish it. You are great! Adeleke Good intentions with this piece of yours but you need to edit it, there are some blunders in there. All the same, you are a wonderful poet. Adeleke
