It’s Sad

It’s easy, it costs so little,
and we don’t do it enough.
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.
