Laugh a lot, and when you're older, all your wrinkles will be in the right places

>> 23 December 2009


Laugh, and your day will be brighter,
laugh, and your burden will be lighter.

Laugh, and make it contagious,
laugh, and become courageous.

Laugh, and the pain becomes bearable,
laugh, and anything is wearable.

Laugh, deep down from your belly,
laugh, till your legs turn to jelly.

Laugh, and tell something funny,
laugh, and don't worry about money.

Laugh, and create joy around you,
laugh, and touch if only a few.

Laugh, and create an instand bond,
laugh, and even pygmies will respond.

Laugh, and if you don't remember how,
click here and it will teach you now.

Laugh, and if you need some inspiration,
laugh, and try this anti-frustration.

Hi Mimi:

Thanks for this awesome poem and link to the prompt. Using Christine Kane's idea for word of the year...I chose laughter for 2010. There are probably a lot of words I could have chosen, but I figure a year full of laughter will take care of a lot of other things going on. So thank you for this timely post and a very Merry Christmas to you and your family!

@Tim:I am glad you liked my poem. And laughter is a very good word of the year. May there be lots of it in 2010 for you.

@Lance: If all I do is put smiles on people's faces, then I am a happy person. Pass it on to someone else will you?

Elaine,
What a great initiative. I had not heard about that yet. I sure will note it in my calendar and do a whooping belly laugh then with my kids and husband.
