It’s Sad

It’s easy, it costs so little,
and we don’t do it enough.
Smile.
Walk down any city street,
and count the number of
people who are smiling.
Or, smile at a stranger and
in all likelihood you’ll get
in angry glare delivered
In your direction.
Perhaps we’ve become
immune to a simple smile.
Maybe we have become
hardened, and no longer
trust expressed or implied
happiness. That’s sad.
It’s nothing to smile about.
