Those thousand smiles
As I wandered around the petty slums
which we had painted the walls of —
A simple tree with fruits hanging from it.
I spotted the most remarkable one —
I quickly hid behind the wall,
watching two little siblings
jumping and trying to pluck the painted fruits…
and those smiles! How can I ever forget that?
Those smiles were like diamonds…..
Those smiles made my smile even broader…..
So why not bring that heart-rending smile
on thousand faces?
Why not see them pluck out the fruits?
