Our smiles have betrayed our inheritance.

A smile that we have practiced while staring down the barrel of a gun.

A smile that has been passed along, a gift of sorts, magic even.

A smile that has put food on tables and allowed tried souls to rest.

A smile indistinguishable from any other, a smile that says I’m okay, I’m not a threat, I come in peace, please allow me to leave in it.

A smile that disguised fears, that make men shrink and women vanish.

A smile much like an opiate to bringers of harm and bone breakers and night riders.

A smile that allows one, to maybe live another day.

A smile so dehumanizing it makes people feel nothing, even towards like.

A smile that appears even through knee buckling degradation.

A worthless smile, a soul killer.

A smile that represents terminal, self induced illness.

A smile that has become poison and a misrepresentation of facts.

A smile that is bone jarring and defeated in it’s delivery.

A smile that is bold as a lie.

A smile when seen betray’s an inheritance, but a smile when gone will fulfill a prophecy.

As long as a people are smiling they be all right and you, safe.

When that smile is gone and a people wake up and an inheritance cashed in.

        I went mad once. Once you go mad, you always walk a fine line. Writing for me, is my medicine. I need this purge to feel strong again, human again, woman again.

        I understand your pain. Been through it. We all have some form of it. You and I are kindred souls…wounded and wanting the sweet release from that pain but fear not, for God sees all and waits…
        Please read The Plan at my blog.

        Not to sound crazy, but when I finally figured out what this country wants for us, it was easy to see right through the bull.

I want get into who’s been damaged the most, it’ll do that we both are okay now and in recovery. I’m going right now to read that post. Thank you.

      I had a very bad day when I wrote this and it comes out in the words here. I really try to remain neutral when writing, but an easier job would be not to write at all.

      I’m honored that you read this and I thank you for that.
