How A Clown Fights Being Down by Blair Gaulton

How A Clown Fights Being Down
Sat down;
with a burning frown;
scalding him deep inside.
As people pass by;
grinning he makes them laugh ‘n’ smile;
with his faces ‘n’ moves.
Boisterous laughter approves;
as he trips over his own shoes.
Their laughter saves him;
from his excruciating blues.

The Clown Talks by Blair Gaulton

The Clown Talks
There’s so much I want to say;
at the moment I don’t know how;
inside it makes me frown.
Yes, I have often been a clown;
crying inside;
struggling to find my way;
one day at a time.
All the smiles I see;
fill me up with joy;
makes me want to dance;
to forget the pain.
Hopefully it will happen, one day.
