When It Hurts To Laugh

Written by: Margeret Bailey

In the middle of "hell" and all its ogres,
It is difficult to find a ray of hope,
or salvation to lighten the spirit,
A smile or simple laughter fights its
way to get to the surface,
While the heart festers with pain
and angst, a mere facade to the outside
world, affirming the mirage, that all is well.
