It is laughter that unlocks the drudgery of life,
it lends its glow to a constricted heart.
Flips over distorted truth and shakes
all the nonsense out.
What ever happens; smile.
Be it pain, betrayal or loss.
You can choose to change how you feel,
even if it’s momentarily.
Lend the darkness the lightness of laughter,
and the softness of a smile.
Whatever arises, you are here to experience the joys,
and complexities, that we call the beauty of life.
When you least want to, that is when you should most
practice the art of gratitude.
