We have ups and downs.
When down we wear a frown.
When up we wear a smile.
Whether up or down some wear a smile.
Those are the ones we should beware.
Hiding their true feelings.
Should make us think what else are they hiding.
To good to be real usually is an act.
We have to let people know the things that we dislike or like.
Which takes time, then we get our prince charming,
After time spent of letting them know.
Things we and actions we dislike.

------- Author's Notes -------

I was asked tonight why it doesn't bother me when somebody is opinionated and outspoken. So I thought about it and now I know. There is no wondering or guessing what they are thinking. They tell you, it may be blunt but its straight forward

Wait , just a second.....

I smile ALL the time, but it doesn't mean that people don't know how I feel about things. I just choose to present a positive attitude to others, as much as I can. And truly, I say that with a smile on my face!! LOL =)
