I found Alena L.'s poem "Laughter" extremely moving. Laughter is a way of abolishing sadness in ones emotions. She writes "Is the only way to subdue tears of disgrace," Laughter for me is also the only way for me to hide my tears of pain and shame. She also writes "As I walk away from it all" This reminds me of the times I have wanted to run away from my problems. Thank you Alena for your touching poem I know others will also relate to.
