The Man Who Couldn’t Stop Smiling

There was a man who would always smile

No matter the situation

He’d smile in the face of any trial

Toward any confrontation

————————————————-

People thought he was weird or conceited

Truthfully, he was cursed

He’d smile despite how bad he’d been treated

He  knew he looked perversed

————————————————-

The spell was far too hard to break

And he became ostracised

He wanted to know his mistake

He was being punished, antagonised

————————————————-
What he would give to cry a tear

And his cheeks ached terribly

He’d lost everyone he held dear

Lost any normality

————————————————-

Then a young girl approached him

And handed him her teddy

“Hello, you can have Tim

He will be your buddy”

————————————————-

“Even though you’re smiling, you look lonely”

The man didn’t know what to reply

Then a miracle began to happen, slowly-

Despite his smile he began to cry

————————————————-

It was the most touching moment

And he continued to smile

A child viewing him free from judgement

And he felt good for a long while

————————————————-

Eventually his smile began to fade

The spell was broken!

A beautiful moment had came to his aid

From the words a child had spoken

————————————————-

Tears began to flood it felt so good

And he felt his smile reappear

But this time he knew it should

So he never held back his cheer
