Laughing feels good, really good.
People rarely tell you that when
They talk about the suffering.
They rarely tell you that you evolve
Into this new person who learns
To recognise the good and bad.
They do not tell you that your days
Become based on calculations, risk.
They should tell you that good and
Bad are extremely fluid. They should
Say that goodness is always seeping
Through. They should tell us that
We are special, we are unique and so
Incredibly blessed, because we know
What it means to feel. We know that
Life is precious, that nature is precious,
That everything around and every
Moment is more amazing than you know
Until it is over. So I live in the moment.
I learn from the moments, my strength
Comes from every moment of my life.
You really cherish that goodness.
Those moments come and go, but
Oh when they are here, they are beyond
What you could have imagined in the
Darkness, they are beyond beautiful.
When it comes and your eyes light up,
Like it is the core of your being,
Being put back into place, you have
Returned home, you are alive again.
The whole world just begins to fall
Away as you are lifted up in an
Intense moment. It overwhelms you.
A fragile body that cannot contain
Such an emotion. How lucky to have
So much joy, so much love, so much
Happiness that you cannot contain it.
How amazing to be in a body that
Knows what to do with it and gives
You so much more joy until it is
Followed by a silent moment of peace.
The balance has come, the emotions
Are released for all the world to receive
And you are calm, you are free!
I know the power of a laugh like that.
You savour it, every single second as
It goes by and then you hold on as
Tightly as you possibly can manage,
You know that it is your weapon to fight
The pain, to keep the darkness out.
It is there, ready for the battle and you
Are armed with more strength than
You realised. You are blessed. Remember,
Not everyone can feel that. Not everyone
Has a light like that inside of them.
It is special. It is what makes me. I will
Never let the suffering define me, only
The strength. That is why I stifle the tears,
I know my body, it can cope with it,
It will choose to take another path and
Remain strong, it will choose to laugh.
