Smile and Laugh

No tears shall stain my cheeks

Only a smile upon my face

I'm walking through such dark times

So I just smile and laugh

 

 

What reason have I to be so cheery

No one seems to be on my side

They glare and mutter as I pass

So I just smile and laugh

 

 

They all hate me

I heard every name, and curse

All of the jokes and threats, you think would hurt

So I just smile and laugh

 

 

Standing out in the open makes me feel free

However it leaves me open to those who wish me ill

Physical pain only lasts so long, not much I can do about it

So I just smile and laugh

 

 

I do stop and think every now and then

About the things I went through

It can almost break my soul, but I'm not broken

So I just smile and laugh

 

 

I'm still walking on, It has been a very lonely trek

Would be nice if along the way someone came with me

Even after all this time that hope is still burning, but for now I'm alone

So I just smile and laugh

 

 

I don't know where I'm going from here

I may live a short life, or I may live a long one

A life lived without laughter is no life at all, no matter how dark it seems

So I just smile and laugh

You can't have the best of times every year, this years been no exception. However I like to live my life by my saying "Life's not worth living if you don't laugh" XD So take all your troubles people, look straight into the new year and just laugh.

Hey, I thought you said your poems didn't give a warm and fuzzy feeling about them. This was really good, it just goes to show that no matter what happens, as long as you can smile to yourself and remember the better times, life's still good.
