LAUGH DO I,
SOMETIMES I CRY
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
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 every day rituals of
Silly and ridiculous as their time slips away.
Oh! to be sure, sometimes I cry if punished am I for
To much care,
The love given to those who can't recognize or
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
When sometimes I cry is it due to a wonderful
Or the sadness that can be seen as I walk through
Laugh do I, sometimes i cry.
This was really good. I’ve just been chatting with a friend about crying. I love to put on music that wrenches my heart, lie on the floor, and have a good, blubbering cry. It’s like a good rain to cleanse the soul. Then I drag myself up, brush myself off, and go back to the computer to try to write humor. What a life! 🙂
Thanks so much for reading.
