Sometimes saving grace relies on tact hiding behind a smile to escape entrenched situations and hurts. Frozen smiles are an art by their right to live a life with a soul that can make its fl8ght.

Frozen Smiles
 
 
It took a while for me to learn to smile
from behind a pile of words I kept to myself.
For a moment, I felt them jammed 
in my mind's cramped space.
 
 
My anger seared my soul waiting to be freed
But I weighed my chances against my defenses
And realized it was a fleeting moment not meant
to last as I walked past times I had passed.
 
 
It takes a lot to smile when feelings pile
from a heart unto a mind put on a shelf
without feeling trapped or slapped
with a reality making a case go on for days.
 
 
But once my heart agreed my mind was freed
from hurt’s trenches climbing reason's branches.
 I learnt to smile without being bent-
over a past that won’t last beyond shadows it cast.
 
 
This goes to say it takes a while to file
tone’s claws without losing one's self
in cramped spaces from situations based
on erasure when a frozen smile can erase words that debase.
