Circus (Poem)

Jason, is an educator that uses his spare time to write poems


What is more enchanting,

For the down and hopeless,

But a show that dazzles,

Or a soft hands caress.

Why peer into the void

When sparks can blind an eye,

Why listen to ruckus,

When songs can hide a cry.

Applause floods a circus,

The show of awesome feats,

Trapeze flips, strongman lifts,

Their tears dried on their cheeks.
