Happiness comes from many things

I read a shirt that said “stop telling women to smile.” Some will take that quote and say “yes, stop telling us to smile!”

I’m the who will tell you to smile. Keep on smiling. Even if you’re sad, just smile. You are beautiful and if a stranger tells you those words, believe them. Don’t get offended or turned off because you may not be attracted to them. Believe them and smile away.

Smile again…. (poem)

I made you smile last night.
It wasn’t just a grin.
No this was a showing all 32s
You bursted into laughter.
I made you smile
And guess what it had nothing to do with sex.
What’s next you’re guessing.
Let’s laugh some more
Tell me something silly so I can return with something not so funny
But you’ll laugh because you think I’m cute.
Let me see that smile one more time.
This time I want mines to touch yours…..~Jamy

Of course time will tell if you truly love this crooked smile.
Vexed with imperfections with no signs of corrections
It’ll be a while
Before you realized I’m just a beautiful confused child.
Like the rest you’ll get used to these antics
No longer unique,
I’ll become another boy who made you feel special an antique.
I got trust issues laced with pain and tissue for those who say they love my smile..
Because it won’t be long before this smile becomes the issue ~Deandre

See there you go assuming
Thinking I’m going to misuse this
Your smile only looks crooked because you look at me with your head to the side
This vibe no modern technology
Let’s take it back to the days before we were even thought of
Here’s my sleeve
Your tears mixed with my skin
This melanin will shine bright
Are you still confused?
Because your queen is waiting….~Jamy

conflicted I lay contemplating
upon hearing that my smile won’t be wasted.
She called herself my queen, so it seems,
That this maybe  the beginning of a love scene
To think it all started with a smile worthwhile..
So here I come,
Giving you all of me again,
Hoping that this time a beautiful journey begin ~Deandre

Let’s laugh together (poem)

If all I’m able to do is give you a reason to smile, giggle or even have a belly deep laugh, it’s enough for me.

I like it when my hair is free, as it should be –
but sometimes it’s wild. It tickles my ears,tells me secrets.
Some days it’s heavy as my heart when I can’t see how blessed I am. So I tame it. I try. –
Take the laughter and the heart hugging joy, take it. It multiplies when shared, in me and in You.

I still don’t know how to share all of Me, except in words but that’s because I know you’ll enjoy it there even if you won’t understand.

Let’s laugh together, there are very few things we will ever understand and that’s okay, we’re wise enough to believe.
I believe you can Laugh with me.
