#HappyBirthdayJoeyAdams #poetry In that delicate balance between laughter and tears, a birthday poem for @RealJoeyAdams by Tracy Diane Miller
What is life?
It is that delicate balance between laughter and tears,
Between joy and sorrow that leads us through the moments,
From today to tomorrow.

How can we understand that need to laugh, and in that same
moment, we are driven to cry?
Our hearts dazed by the confusion,
That we find ourselves questioning why.

What is life?
It is that delicate balance between laughter and tears
in the soul of a writer,
as he crafts the characters to endear?

His characters emerge in the shadows
Hungry to be heard, even as they patiently wait.
Their voices are never silent,
Their courage is always great.

For these characters, these stories,
That speak to that delicate balance between laughter and tears,
That examine a world made dark by the screams of discontent,
Weary by societal ills, emotions that are spent.

In that delicate balance between laughter and tears,
You, the writer, serves as our guide.
For you are a man strong in his convictions,
Living in a world where compassion sometimes hides.

Is it any wonder that a Muse has much to say?
And that a poet who admires you,
Can find the words to honor you,
On this, your birthday.
