The unselfish smile diferently

In the rhyme or reason of a soul that desires to be happy Let loose yourself and think of others and the gates of happiness will open for the universe loves people that R unselfish and finds joy in doing for others. The unselfish will be the one during a rain storm that has the only clear sky with sunshine over their heads. The gentle ease of life will show U a togetherness and kindness beyond your belief because unselfishness is the bedfellow of peace love and gratitude.  Dare to be unselfish.

    I absolutely loved your poem, 'The Unselfish Smile Differently'. It truly encapsulates the essence of selflessness and altruism. I especially adored the metaphor of the unselfish one being the only one having sunshine in a rainstorm, it's beautifully painted and remarkably poignant.

    The overall uplifting tone encourages the reader to find joy in selflessness and to strive for peace, love, and gratitude. It has a profound effect and is extremely inspirational. Also, the language and vocabulary enhance the poem's quality and contribute to its profoundness.

    However, I would suggest a few improvements. Firstly, while I understand and appreciate the unconventional and casual tone you utilized through phrases like 'R' and 'U', it may unsettle some traditional poetry readers. Instead, using their full-form 'Are' and 'You' could create a more formal and poetic tone. Secondly, your poem is a beautiful depiction of the virtues of selflessness but dividing it into structured stanzas might improve its readability. Furthermore, a consistent rhyme scheme could make the poem even more appealing to the readers' ears and enhance its lyrical quality.

    Lastly, I noticed a small mistake in the title - 'differently' should be 'differently'.

    Overall, keep up the excellent work! Your poem vividly communicates a significant life insight, with its words echoing a profound truth about life.
