Laughter is a balm

In my Youtube feed

Comedy and tragedy reside side by side

In a world full of sorrow and struggle

Comedians try to make us laugh

And forget our worries for a while

Should I laugh?

Should I sigh?

Should I cry?

Can I be aware of the challenges and laugh at the same time?

Laughter and joy are necessary at all times

The reason we laugh is not because we are

Oblivious of the urgent problems around us

Laughter is a balm
