Laugh - Poem by Onyi Ogwumike
If I never do anything, I want to laugh.
I want to look up to the sky and laugh my heart out with the luscious sun beams of the crisp, warm air dancing on my chocolate brown face.
I want to twist and lunge my body onto my bubble of joy and sit on it till it pops and explodes into an array of colorful splashes that hit my face
Leaving a dew sweeter than honey.
Then I want to lick my lips and smile with the elixir of euphoria gliding down my throat,
Dripping over my heart and wrapping it with a golden warmth so good i want to melt in its hug.
And I’m going to, I’m going to laugh.
My lungs filling with air I bubble out a long, hearty laugh that shakes the world.
Or at least it does to me. Because to me I’m 10 feet tall, towering over the world,
In a realm all my own.
And I like it up here,
Because up here, I laugh.
