The Clown

Fun & full of spirit, that’s what he is!
A joyful character; he doesn’t seem to know sadness.
His happy eyes seem not to know how to cry,
For he hide behind a big smile.
Yes, he is like that all the time.

His nose & cheeks tag along in hue,
So red –it seem a blush over a rendezvous.

Kids & grown-ups alike,
Were in need of his presence
For he is like a rainbow
Battling sadness with lively colors.

He try so hard to make everyone laugh
But, nobody knew the man behind the mask.

A man whose temples frown,
His wistful eyes seem to have abandoned the light.
He doesn’t shine at all.
But, nobody dared to ask him,
If he is doing fine
Or if he is okay.
