Painted Face - Poem by Raj Thampi

I paint my face with colors
I wear the laugher around my lips
I am doing summersaults
I am doing stupid acts
To entertain the masses
I am falling and waking up
To bring smiles on faces
Behind the thick layer of colors
My face is burned by tears
I am just a clown....
Life plays me mercilessly
I want to stop this act
I am so tired of this play
