Laughter by Jessica Gonzales

Juxtaposed by a world of pain
Overcast by a cloud of shame
Breath. Let go.
Let the laughter overflow.

Flow. Like that champagne and cocaine
Like those bars he just laid.
Like those waterfalls I’m chasin

Chasin waterfalls, but not chasin alcohol
Alcoholic.
I’m just tryna frolic through this night.
Out of sight.

Outta sight out of mind.
Forever on that grind.
But we gotta make time... for laughter.
