Stranger, that smile you wear is beautiful,
and you show it more than you pout,
your eyes squint because the happiness pushed them up that way,
and it is raw. Not boiled down by society,
but raw and pure and free.
You post quotes that are as beautiful as that smile.
They bless me with an insight to your mind.
And beautiful is what I seem to find.
Stranger that smile you wear is strong.
And the quotes suggest that it is pure,
not that your life has been perfect but that you chose to look beyond its imperfections.
It’s often figure 8 girls with ‘fleeky’ make up that cause pauses on Instagram
with comments like ‘girl where did you get those heels?’
But girl where did you get that smile?
Stranger, that smile is beautiful.
