Loneliness and Laughter


Loneliness and Laughter,
Great rivals are they.
Loneliness is saddness.
Loneliness is crushing.
Loneliness is isolation
In a crowded room.

Laughter is the cure.
It chases the sadness away.
It lifts the crushing weight.
It opens the door between
Isolation and happiness.
Laughter is the cure for everything.
