Laughing with my eyes closed

They laugh like the whole world is noticing I laugh like no one is watching me They laugh to hide their fear and their lies I laugh till it’s teary in my eyes They laugh to make others riled I laugh to make others smile They laugh at me because I am different I laugh at them because they are consistent They laugh nervously because tomorrow is all they count I laugh because tomorrow never comes They laugh to pretend they are happy I laugh to make others happy They laugh at neighbours and enemies I laugh with strangers and babies They laugh to conceal their ill-feeling I laugh because laughter is fulfilling
