Laughter: A Poem | Hugs and Fist Bumps

Written: Wednesday, April 26, 2017; 7:45 am

I laughed last night til I broke. Til the cracked damns of life receded into the shores of bright tomorrows and sparkling horizons.

Til my soul’s sorrows crumpled under the boom of belly laughs fat with tears and hope and mystical possibilities.

Til joy cracked open doubt and ache like fresh coconut off the tree. Sweet island nectar trickles down my chin.

See, fear can’t hold me, impossible can’t stop me.

Watch these wings baby, to infinity and beyond.

Catch this stardust baby, cause the moon goddess awakens.

Haven’t you heard?

Murky murmurings have lost their sting. Ladened lisps have lost their clout.
Oppression. Aggression. Condemnation.

Your works have no roots. Your works bear no fruit.

Death swept across your lush terrains stripping you bare. Open spectacle.

I see you.
