World Of Clowns


People who cover their true faces with makeup
People who act totally different from who they really are
People who are bad actors, but good performers
People who don't take things seriously
People who have fake sense of humor to replace their hurts
People who live fake lives to impress the audience around us
People who are masters at doing tricks to give false leads to the most attentive watchers
People who fall down again and again just to get the reaction
People who laugh even though there's no more smiles in them
People who have a fear of themselves

We
Are
A
World
of
Clowns

    Wonderful! People who mislead, and laugh with an unsimiling heart are real villains. People are scared of themselves.

    Though it is not easy to be a clown to make others to laugh, do you mean everyone of us, trying to amuse others? Different kind of thought! Nice.. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
