To Laugh - Poem by Cheryl Lynn Moyer Peele

Life swirls around me.
I am out of gear, out
of sync, one beat off.
Nothing makes sense.
I must stay calm
to avoid panic.

Depression's gray fog
begins to wrap
it's smoky fingers
about me.

My physical well-being
is now entrusted to
pink pulsating
plastic pills

I search deep within
for a safe path back
to here

and now a bubbling
bouncing
resurrection

because I laugh.
