“Smile please ,
One… Two…Three…Ready !”
Click… Click… Click…

“This is the best photo of the day
For sake of this energetic smile,”
The photographer said
Showing me the photograph.

Looking at the photo
I couldn’t believe myself
That I can smile too,
I can still smile .

“Next Shot,”
He called me aloud .
I got ready
Wearing, again, a mask of smile.

Finally, I had learnt
To wear masks, perfectly.
Just how you used to wear
A mask of being enamored.

Leave your footprints here... say your heart out !
