Time to Smile


I once met an old lady at the train’s front desk,

We started a conversation which I could not contest.

Her face defines the years of wisdom’s statuesque

That made me ask her about life’s real quest,


I listened intently as she opens her mouth to speak

She told me to remember some of life’s real technique

Later in life I won’t see her since she’s already weak

But the words that she’ll utter will make my life unique.


She said never chase happiness for it will just come to me

Be busy with my own thing; do good to all people I see

Never let negativities of others remove my glee

Because my mind should be set in the goal I foresee.


She looks at my eyes, so deep it reached my spine,

Then she slowly tells me, I must let my real light shine.

Then she insisted that I should learn how to decline

If my life’s own happiness is already in line.


My jaw dropped as I stared for a while,

Her words make sense and it is all worthwhile,

She holds my hand, “I know that you came from a trial”,

“now that it’s over, it is time for you to  smile.”


About Audrey

I am not a typical “girl-next-door”, But I am striving to be a woman of valor. I cannot turn the heads of many people, But I can touch their lives and still be humble. To please my Creator, that is my main goal, To let Him mold me, for me to fit in my role. My other wish is to have a pure soul, And to have a zealous heart like a burning coal. Strength and honor must be my clothing, Purity and honesty, for me is an important thing. To be a woman of principles, that’s what I’m preparing, To make God proud of me as I keep on dazzling. I may not be as perfect as what I want to be, A soldier in the battle that is what I can see. I’ll keep on fighting to solve life’s mystery, To win the battle is the best reward for me!
