Because…

Happy because I’ve been sad.

Laughter because I don’t want to cry.

I hope I have no tears left but for joy.

See the good because

the bad one doesn’t need to try and see.

And only seeing the bad is blinding.

Dreams when I’m awake,

because sleep is no place for dreams.

I smile because my face tires from frowning,

I run because I’ve crawled for too long,

Free because I’ve been a slave,

to vanity, to what they say, to expectation,

I’m free because I’ve been chained by truth.
