Smile anyway

Most of us struggle
At some point
Trauma doesn't discriminate
And life isn't fair

There is worth
In being authentic
You have a right to feel
Especially when things suck

The question is
What do you hold onto?
Do you linger on the negative?
Or do you move on?

Its easy to choose bitter
Bad memories pile up
And effectively suffocate
The good ones

The hard choice
Is to choose happiness
To revisit the positive
And forget the bad luck

Some consider it fake
Forcing a smile
But I find the smile lingers
Even when I force it

A positive attitude
Won't change reality
But it will change
How you feel

Life sucks,
Smile anyway.
