We must be wary of the Drearies
draining life of all fun because we
might dare to dance and laugh in the
face of all that suffering, our
immature expressions of pleasure met with a
glare and a sharp “Shush!”.
But within the laughter and dance lie
abyssals of want, longing, love, grief,
regret, desire, frustration, all
confused in that joy which can
one moment spring a smile and the
next spring tears.
