I don't want to smile
I don't feel like I should
after being surrounded by hypocrisy
selfishness and carelessness
and seeing the same in others
why should I smile?
what would be the point?
and then reluctant
surrounded by the saints
and their God
what changed the early saints
Got to church this evening, absolutely
miserable. Emily and the "boys" were
playing in their usual style and I found
myself smiling in spite of myself.
