Laughter is By Vivian Pham

Laughter is


Laughter is a three-leafed clover,

a rabbit’s foot still attached,

a wishbone that was made to last. 

To tease and be teased is true equality;

let no one feel invisible, intangible, or indestructible. 

Sorrow is rice and laughter is a rarity, 

waiting patiently to become precious to us.
