Smiles are butterflies of human soul,
Set free from cocoon of dullness
If yours are still trapped within
Don’t resist or kill those of others.
So many times we kill them before they fly
from one lip to wake up one from others,
by unkind frowns, scorn or rejection
and kill a really beautiful moment.
