I have learned

I have learned to conquer

sorrow with a smile

& anger with a laugh

 

Autumn settles in

on this lifechapter

Bringing its sullen hues

of death(betrayal)

 

Yet my lifebook

is not complete

Still being written,

I smile & laugh

 

Many leaves have fallen

& still more are dying

But I myself am alive,

laughing(hysterical) at death

 

I have learned to conquer

sorrow with a smile

& anger with a laugh
