Smiling in stormy seasons

A real man smiles in stormy seasons
He tries to tame his timely tears.
A brave man smiles for unknown reasons...
He strives to starve his flaws and fears.

No one is born flawless and fearless,
Life is a potpourri of bloom and gloom.
Some chose to be hopeless and cheerless,
By giving gloom an ample space to bloom.
