Hey girl, since when did you learn to…

hey-girl

Smile

and greet the guests at your door
beckoning them inside
when just a minute back
you were lying in your bed
crying your eyes out

Rise

and leave your bed in the morning
living your everyday routine
when just a night back
you had resolved to yourself to change your ” everyday ” mundane

Love

and devote your entire being
worshipping “him” and the home
when just a day back
you were shown your place
in “his” life and “his” home

Act

and show the world
that all is well in your eutopia
when just a heartbeat back
You died a million deaths
in trying to “smile”, “rise” and “love”
