Pinch those cheeks
Into a smile
Whether you walk
A step or a mile

Not only does it help,
It practically excludes the self

So you’re free to be free now
Go on, smile


Let Yourself Be


For the utmost of arrogance is misery. 

Your actions, your words directly, unmistakably reflect 

The view in your head

Of yourself.

And if, by whatever means, you have come to think

You are not of value, you are substandard, in any manner

Why, you are cursing the very gift of life.

You are actively denying the infinite;

Forcing your moments into boxes neatly labeled

By somebody else.

So let yourself be free, let yourself be.
