Cheap Therapy

Lilnking with the wonderful folks at Poetry Jam.

"Poverty stole your golden shoes it didn't steal your laughter."
~Jewel from the song "Hands"

You can spend 200 dollars a visit at Dr Sinclairs.
Go to the spa have a facial and color your hair.
Buy some new heals that match your black dress.
Eat a carton of ice cream, and let the house stay a mess.
Whatever you choose to heal all of life's hurts,
let God's gift of laughter be the one you pick first.



  1. This is PERFECT!!! Oh, how true...and yes, we were thinking along the same lines on the Architect poem weren't we? Rather uncanny, but looking at a big building obviously stirred the same realization in both of us...what draws me to your writing is how eloquently you write many thoughts I have pondered but am not able to put into words like you do!
    Thank-you so much for blessing us with your gift.

  2. Laughter is indeed a beautiful gift, and it costs nothing at all! Well stated, Carrie.

  3. "Whatever you choose to heal all of life's hurts,
    let God's gift of laughter be the one you pick first." very true! laughter is the best medicine!

  5. Great uplifting poem with a strong use of rhyme.

    All the best
