A universal symbol,
yet just a tiny arc.
Welded into each of us,
unable to be torn apart.
You see it almost everywhere,
on yellow circles and on faces.
Its existed throughout all of time,
and is a part of all the races.
Its a symbol meaning happiness,
that one is expressing joy.
The truth behind cannot be faked,
or used simply as a ploy.
Its not just used in pleasant times.
Sometimes its use is mischievous.
For those who take pleasure out of pain,
its a sign that they are devious.
No matter what the connection,
whether its pleasant or its vile,
this universal symbol,
is simply just a smile.
