Sometimes life won’t turn out how you plan, but no worries. God has something better in store. That’s something I can believe in.
Some women smile even
when they’re uncomfortable.
They mastered the art of flexing
the corners of their mouths,
fixing them taut to their cheeks.
Did you know it takes less muscles
to smile than it does to frown?
Maybe that’s why we pretend to be happy,
rather than risk letting our faces crumple.
But mine has already fallen,
my heart is glued to my palm—
and you could rend me with a touch.
But the heart is also a muscle
and with each cleaving stroke,
it can grow stronger.
You used to think I was beautiful.
Well, I wish I could show you now
that I am still am.
Oh goodness! Thank you!
When I do find a significant other, it will as a result of seduction via my awkward charm.
