I dislike this poem immensely...it's much too dark and gloomy to be a poem about God, His Gift of Salvation through His Son, Jesus Christ, and Jesus' Death on the cross to pay for our sins; our life as a re-born child of God's; and the joy, the TRUE joy, that can ONLY be found as a child of God's once more! ! 'Laughter is a face of the unwise'? ? ? I laugh, because I have JOY. I have JOY because I found God, as HE was searching for ME, calling out for me to come to Him, repent of my sins, asking His forgiveness of me, a sinner, who had, (and still does, of course) fall SHORT of the GLORY OF GOD! Laughter should be abundant...our lives should be FULL of laughter! What a waste of time, reading this 'gloom and doom' type poem!
