The Frown Of A Clown

There is such sadness

in the frown of a clown,

a painted on smile

still a frown up-side down.


Tear stained cheeks

a trail of his pain,

alone on the streets

rejected again.


He wears a mask

but beneath a child's broken,

he is silently crying

his sorrow unspoken.


The frown of a clown

a heart that is shattered,

still he longs to bring laughter

though he's been sadly battered.


He strives on the streets

living lies to bring joy,

but there is no happiness

for this little boy.
