– smile or die –



Me in 2012 attempting to smile without giving off a creeper vibe… oh well.


Lookin’ ‘round this house again,

I see the anxiety.

Sniffin’ up the walls, and then…

I smell a complacent me.

Hearin’ creaks, so why pretend

I live in a symphony?

Touchin’ my face to find one trace

of peace… of pure jubilee, ‘cause


I’ll be here just a little bit longer,

so I’ll be just a little bit stronger.

Need to find things to smile about,

for I am sure I’ll die without.

Some item, person, or place, some love to renew my faith

if I’ll make it out alive, so I’ll

smile or die…

smile or die.
