It’s a face that I show sometimes to not let known,

That my hurt inside is so very real, laugh do I.

Humor is a tool that I use for safety and to forget,

That things taken for granted can blow away with the wind.

I tell you for certain, yes! it is that sometimes I cry,

Alone, inside, or out loud by the moonlight.

Laugh do I when I witness the everyday rituals of wasted lives,

Silly and ridiculous as their time slips away.

Oh! to be sure sometimes I cry if punished am I for too much care,

The love given to those whom can’t recognize or understand.

If laugh do I, is it because happiness is within me or a funny thought,

Or hide what is perceived as pain and maybe a heartfelt loss.?

When sometimes I cry is it due to a wonderful emotional experience,

Or the sadness that can be seen as I walk through my life.

Laugh do I, sometimes I cry.
