I'm regaining my positive outlook, I really am,

It might seem strange at first, but it is who I am.

"Everything will get better if you smile", I believe this now,

I used to scoff at this, but I can smile now, I think they can.

 

You know what came with this? Bravery.

Bravery to not be shackled by my own rules,

Bravery to speak to her, to break a promise I made,

Bravery to see that sometimes, rules are wrong.

 

I made some long ago, and stood by them,

My values, my bible, my everything, I kept them intact.

But that was wrong, because it was the start of my pessimism,

Maybe what I did sometimes was wrong, but I had my optimism.

 

And now, things will get better if you smile, if you take a step,

I believe this, I cast my promises away, that's my first large step.

I was brave enough to talk to her, and I am hopeful of the outcome,

It's only optimism, but I ask you, when has smiling ever hurt anyone?

Smiling never hurts anyone, but maybe the person who is smiling.
