Smile…

irritated. frustrated. distressed. confused. annoyed. nervous. troubled. bothered. upset. disconcerted. perplexed. worried. aggravated. sad.

Despite it all, trying my best to keep a smile on my face and my head held high. but it’s not easy.

Smile, though your heart is aching.
Smile, even though it’s breaking…
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by…

If you smile, through your fear and sorrow…
Smile, and maybe tomorrow,
You’ll see the sun come shining through, for you…

Light up your face with gladness,
Hide every trace of sadness.
Although a tear, may be ever so near…

That’s the time, you must keep on trying…
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile…
If you just smile


That’s the time you must keep on trying…
Smile, what’s the use of crying?
You’ll find that life is still worthwhile…
If you just smile.

-Nat King Cole, 1964
