Day One ~ Laughter ~ #BlogFlash2013


People think I'm funny, but they have no idea! 
Because laughter is my Armour and laughter keeps me safe.

I am that jolly person, always telling jokes.
Because laughter is my Mask and laughter keeps me safe.

Look into my eyes, for they do tell the truth. 
Because laughter is my Shield and laughter keeps me safe.


The darkness in my heart, does try to pull me down.
But laughter is my Protector and laughter keeps me safe.

  9. I wish I could find the laughter in the dark moments. My husband tries, but rarely succeeds. Hopefully my daughter will take up the charge. Her laugh, I couldn't resist.
