It don't have to be funny,
the day doesn't have to be sunny.
Nothing doesn't have to be right,
it could be real close to fright.
The weight of the world,
could be on our shoulders,
heavier than Mt Everest boulders.
When times get rough,
we need to laugh.
We also need to cry,
it's up to us to give in or strongly defy.
I laugh more than I cry,
and I know the reason why.
We don't have to be happy to laugh,
nor do we have to feel good to smile.
Enough pain will produce an action,
bring disappointment or satisfaction.
Laughing and crying are choices,
chiseled out from lifes hard courses.
Too know a laugh and a smile,
is to know joy for awhile.
Awhile might only be a minute,
so we should enjoy while we're in it.
Out of all earth's creatures,
we were blessed with joy features.
especially when we win and lose.
Which one we choose,
is up to the one who wins or loses.
Not the outside observer looking in,
with only saddness as a friend.
