A gun can kill, fire can burn,
Wind can chill, and the mind can learn,
Anger can rage 'til it tears you apart,
But the power of your smile can mend a broken heart.

This poem is based on lyrics from Tupac Amaru Shakur (1971 - 1996) , also known by his stage names 2Pac. He was an American rapper, songwriter, and actor.
Here are the original lyrics from the song titled, "Power Of A Smile":
"The power of a gun can kill,
and the power of fire can burn
The power of wind can chill,
and the power of mind can learn
The power of anger,
can rage inside until it tears you apart
But the power of a smile,
especially yours, can heal a frozen heart"

Hi, this poem is so real to me. I've seen a smile mend my own frozen, broken heart. I hated myself because of the things that have happened to me. I would even hate the piece of myself in the mirror. I even started to hate taking selfies. I was so cruel to myself, but the other day I was looking in the same mirror and decided to smile. Oh guess what. From there, I said to myself let me just add the little smile to my face. Till now I love me. Problems are still unsolved, but a smile shines on my face always.
