    Put A Smile On



    Put a smile on the man who’s turned to the booze,
    Put a smile on the wife who’s singing the blues,
    Put a smile on the kids who’s left with no dad,
    Put a smile on the faces of all who are sad.

    Put a smile on the hungry and those with the food,
    Put a smile on the homeless and those who are rude,
    Put a smile on the wino and those with the badge,
    Put a smile on the faces of all who are sad.

    Put a smile on the child who needs help to read
    Put a smile on the teen who’s caught up in speed,
    Put a smile on the sinner who thinks he’s so bad,
    Put a smile on the faces of all who are sad.

    Put a smile on the teacher who’s doing her best,
    Put a smile on the parent who’s flunking the test,
    Put a smile on the student who can’t seem to add,
    Put a smile on the faces of all who are sad.

    Put a smile on the soldier who’s holding a gun,
    Put a smile on the mother that just lost her son,
    Put a smile on the friend who’s angry and mad,
    Put a smile on the faces of all who are sad.


    George

    Usually repetition doesn't work for me but this does. Put a smile on...if only it were possible. I try to remember when things are bad that it could be worse and that often helps but there are times when that doesn't work.

    A poem full of hope for all who are sad.

    hugs,

    The repetition and rhymes work good here.
    Great message too. I really like this George!
    You've done a great job!

    Now all that echoes in my head is Put a Smile On! Heh. As the others already said, repetition works here. Very hopeful, but that might not work with everyone. I, for example, can't always put a smile on when I get sad. But I do try.

    Lovely work :)
