I smiled


I smiled

...I smiled

the day I heard it all 

...I smiled

The day I should’ve cried the most 

...I smiled

The day I barely breathed 

...I smiled

The day that changed everything 

...I smiled

That day

...I smiled

I smiled because the words I longed to say were captured by my white tooth fence and guarded by my sharp tongue

I smiled because my shouts were too loud and my emotions were too strong for the world to contain

I smiled because I’d rather have my words held tight than wish to whisper them back

I smiled because I had no choice...

Because sometimes all you could do is smile.
