“You earned that beautiful smile.
And no one can take it from you.”

She thought happiness was a fairy tale. Traversing hell to find a life. Overcoming hatred to be loved. Because, darling, it took years to learn how to smile. Not that one you remember so well — the one forced upon her face. But the real one. She never said it was easy, finding those moments of joy. And that smile is never something anyone can break, because they were never the ones that built it.

They don’t get to take credit
for the happiness you’ve built.
