Laughter Is My Sunshine - Poem by Samantha Wallace

Laughter is my sunshine,
It keeps me warm and sane.
It makes my life more bearable,
Even when it rains.

So when the sky is grey and dull,
I use laughter to tan my life.
It readjusts my focus,
And irons out all my strife.

Its power lightens up my mood.
It's the silver lining in my cloud.
I don't know why or how it works,
But it's the best anti-depressant around!

So I suggest you follow my lead,
And use laughter to brighten your soul.
Find things that make you laugh,
To take back your mind's control.

Don't allow the grey weather,
To darken up your mind.
Just use laughter as your rainbow,
To bring colours to your inside.

A cheerful heart is good medicine,
It can melt away your pain.
For when you learn to laugh at life and self,
There's an inner joy you'll gain.

Laughter can oil the hinges in your life,
When you're creaking under pressure.
It helps to lighten your heavy load,
There's a power in this treasure.

Become an instrument of humour,
To help lightens others' burdens.
And for every attack of the enemy,
You'll find it's a powerful weapon.

So whatever makes you laugh,
Whatever makes you smile.
Seek out these things and you will find,
A life much more worthwhile!
