SMILE – Lesley Saine

SMILE

Stranger in a strange land
Welcome smile
Bared teeth
Friendliness
Mistaken for hostility
Aggression
Welcome smile
Can equal death

Stranger in a strange land
Welcome smile
Hand of friendship
Masking the lies
Unscrupulousness
Treacherous deceit
Welcome smile
Can hide the true intent

Stranger in a strange land
Welcome smile
Innocent
Open and trusting
Met with distrust
Suspicion
Welcome smile
Lost amongst the prejudice

Stranger in a strange land
Welcome smile
Friendly overtures
Ignored
Classed out of the system
Respect sadly lacking
Welcome smile
Tainted by broken ideals

Stranger in a strange land
Welcome smiles all around
Differences reconciled
Working together
Collaborating
For a better future
Welcome smiles
Transparency and honesty shining through
