    I was a travelling clown, once upon a moon.

    No one ever knows
    what goes on behind the mask of white –

    there is only the expectation
    to keep people
    entertained.

      I’m reminded that many of us wear masks every day….and your statements apply so well.
      Would love to see a photo of you as a travelling clown! I trust you had a happier face painted on??? Travelling to??? parties, small town circuses, county fairs….??

      I really hesitated to write on this one….I truly find it a devastating image.

      Oufdah! Did not intend it that way. But that’s the interesting thing about writing…once the words are down, it’s up to the reader to interpret them. Thanks for reading…:)

        I didn’t initially think it was him.. just occurred to me the second time I read it. Didn’t think it was necessarily intended.

    “but he is forever in the ring.”…The saddest part of his life.

      And it continues…the infinity of the ring.
