Untitled - Poem by Angie L. Marty

Have you ever heard a laugh -
A laugh of all the ages?
I heard it only once
Men who lived through death and trial
Who now see life and happiness
Know no laugh such as this
Women who freshly gave birth to a child
as perfect as the break of light
Know no laugh such as this
No, the laugh I heard was not sweet or innocent
nor was it of happiness
It was shocking, yet not unexpected
I heard a laugh of one who just had killed her drunken spouse
It was the laugh of freedom, ringing in my ear!
