Sad Clown- A Poem

Source

Sad Clown

There's a child in me

That never had a chance to live

So with others I try my best

To give all happiness that I can give.


I paint my face with make up everyday

Because I am a clown.

I paint a smiley face, a red nose

Because I can't afford to frown.


But in truth I am a sad clown you see,

Because I never really lived

Nobody ever really sees the real me

Nor the parent that never was willing to give.


Today I will give the children my all

For it may just be my last,

With each day I continue to fall

Into memories of the past.


Today I will bring laughter and smiles

Because that may stop me

But in truth, inside

I am very unhappy.


There's a child in me

That never had a chance to live.

Thanks for sharing, very sad but true in many of our lives. Childhood was not an easy task for me, nor my teenage years. The best part of my life was being a mom.

My children mean the world to me and I try to never show them anything but joy and happiness and understanding. Three things I had to question during my childhood. Thank you.

CrescentMoon, do you think you could talk to that child and do something fun in her honor - something that you both will enjoy? I did this once. I took my inner child on a field trip and went to take a tour of this fun cave that included a boat ride and seeing ruby-colored falls due to the lights they have shining on the waterfall. It's called Ruby Falls and it is located in the state of Tennessee. I think that particular inner child is a reminder to us to still do fun things so that we don't get overly caught-up with grown-up cares. Just a suggestion for you to consider.

Best wishes,

Debbie aka DJ Lyons
