Keeping It Real

I have always had this tendency to be nice

Even when I am staring up at the face of an hater

My first reaction would be a smile

I just never found anything good to come out of being so unfriendly

Lately though I’ve become tired of smiling

So now I’m more selective of whose day I’m cheering up with a smile

I’m learning to save my smile for the people who are worth it

I’m learning to keep it real

Real raw genuine smiles only this time around folks!
