Pledge the badge of loyalty
Sing the songs of hypocrisy
Hiding under the name of democracy
While matching in the name of bureaucracy

When was the last time you saw your smile
When was the last time you saw your family smile
When was the last time you saw your neighbor smile
When was the last time you saw your country smile

Summer rains in people’s face
The innocent are in search of grace
The hearts of the good is on a verge of misplace
Collectively we are in a state of disgrace

I saw the fear in an innocent man
Who fell victim to the politics of scam
He knew nothing of their selfish plan
While expecting thy mail, thy became their mailman

When was the last time you saw your own tear
Despite knowing everyone around you survives under fear
Might you be so heartless that you do not even care
I suggest you look in the mirror before looking into others’ affair

They say’ even a lonely wolf ends up in a pack
To survive one needs to learn how to counter their attack
Take a wrong move and you might end up being their snack
Thus, one step at a time with your eyes behind your back

The hidden tears in our eyes
Do result to violence in disguise
Regardless of the storm brewing in the skies
It never hurts to wipe away someone else’s cries

Smiling is one amongst the greatest of gifts
With the most minimal of efforts one could uplift
No matter how strong, an emotion can succumb to a shift
With a smile on your face, one could never face defeat

Do your best to make yourself smile
Do your best to make your family smile
Do your best to make your neighbor smile
Do your best to make your country smile
