Laugh and the World Laughs with You
What fun it is to laugh, especially when those around laugh too.
It’s like a contagious fixation when they are laughing with you.
But when you cry people disappear like you have an infection.
They can’t get out fast enough as if they’ll get your affliction.
Why is that I wonder, when one emotion chases them away?
And the other emotion makes them want to stay?
I think we get pulled in no matter which emotion is displayed.
One makes us want to run, the other to stay all day.
So I’ll keep on laughing because I enjoy people around.
I’ll bring to a halt my crying, so people don’t leave town.
What difference is it really; it’s an emotion just the same?
One repels like the plague, the other keeps you sane..
