The Smile Medicine(Inspired by Enid Blyton’s story, “Sulky Susan”)

There was once a little girl,named Susan

any ordinary girl you could imagine,

but she had a grumpy face.sulky susan

She had golden blond hair which cascaded down to her shoulders,

with a cute headband and colourful pastel shirts,

but that horrible grump was what made the ugliness- ugh!

Then one day,

a little old man- a few inches shorter than her-maybe the size of a brownie,

with emerald green eyes that shone under the sun,

with greying hair-

but what made him special was his wide smile.

He came over to the sulky little Susan,

and handed her a mirror.

What Susan saw made her appalled;

she was looking at a terrible face-

with green eyes

and a horrid frown.


“Now smile,” said the old man, giving a grin.

She gave a grin in front of the shiny mirror-

and she saw a pretty girl- or maybe a princess,

looking kindly at her.

Her dimples danced,smiling

and her pearl white teeth

with her pink lips,

went into a curved smile- A SMILE!smile

“This is magic,” Susan said,

holding the mirror tightly.

She bade the wizard farewell

and kept on smiling at the mirror.

Many of her friends didn’t understand-

but what they knew was-

A smile takes a mile!


Being The Real You

Many of us girls

watch all those Youtube “BeautyGurus”.

Now most of us are all pressurized over beauty.

But  I don’t care.

I don’t care when I wear baggy granny pants,

when I’m happy that I have a trim figure

I don’t care when I got pimples on my face,

when I know there’s a radiant glow with my smile.

I don’t care how my hair gets in the wrong place,

when I’ve got long cascading hair.

We all got flaws,

why do we need to be like fake Barbies?

Or take cosmetic surgery?

We just have to remember

that we always have to be happy with what we all had.

You may not have a pretty face,

but the best thing is

you have a beautiful

You may not have long wavy hair,

but you have short curly hair-which fits you most.

You may not have a slim figure,

but what’s wrong with that-you’re still trim and fit.

And you know what?

The inner beauty we all have is

Being the real you!


A Walk in The Park

Sitting bored on his armchair,

little Jim decided to take a walk in the new park.

The 31st Creep Park,

it was named,

but Jim gave a little shake and walked in,

then he heard a sound.

Sounds of mice, no, rats, scurrying off,


the sound of water dripping.

Then there was a witch’s shriek,

followed by a cry of terror.

Jim saw a puppy,

transforming to a young doggy,

then a werewolf.

It gave a howl,


and scratched the poor little Jim.

Just another walk, he thought,

as he took his pace and stared at the terrifying trees,


He felt his face go pale,

and soon

ran out of the park,

never wanting to go there again.afraid

Unbreakable Love

There are some times we quarrel,

get into fights,

you spread hurtful rumours about me,gossip

causing me

to lose my precious friends,

it’s my fault,

not yours,

I got home and thought to myself…

Because if I break up with you now,

I have no one to talk to,

no one to go with during breaks,lonely

no buddy.

The next day, there you were, sitting down miserably.

I stretched out my hand toward you,

asking you to do a handshakehandshake

and saying,

“Would you forgive me?”

You thought for a while


and gave me the bonding handshake.

Life without you has been incomplete,

like a sandwich with no filling,

or a pen without ink.

But now we are friends,

our pinkie-promises

and little handshakes

let us remain

best friends forever. bestfriends

My Luck

One day

I was gardening on my grassy patch,clover

and I found

a beautiful green four leaf clover.

I looked at it

and wished that it would give me luck.

No, not wealth,

neither of getting smart brains,

or winning the lottery (which I would NEVER do.)

I just wanted it

to wish my sick friend

lying miserably

in the hospital with


showered with love and care.

The next day,

I got off to the hospital,

and there was my friend,

lying in a coma.

I looked at her,

uttered a short prayer to lord,

and took outcoma

that green clover,

placing it in my best friend’s hand.

After a short while I left,

hoping that she would be showered with love and care.

The next day,

doctors called me,

and announced that I had

made a miracle.

I rushed to the hospital,

and there she was,

sitting straight up,

opening her great blue eyes,

smiling at me!

It was then

that horrible coma

died off

while the clover eased my friend’s pain.

Not a true friend

On that day

we received our test marks.

I got a grade B,

and you got a grade A+.test paper

The teacher gloated on about your test marks,

while you sat there, grinning with pride.

You waved your test paper at me and taunted about my marks;

you hurt my feelings,

Instead of comforting me like before,

you only taunted and made me cry.

The next day we played basketball.

You kicked my knees,

accidentally on purpose

and laughed at me for being a crybaby.bully-boy

A week later

I saw you, smoking with cigarettes and sniffing glue.

I just want to ask you:

Why have you changed?

Why is it you ganged up with bad people?

Why did you taunt me?


Because after witnessing your true colours,

I think you

are not my true friend anymore.
