a questionable soul.?
Peace be with you

|I love this poem. Why? It is a feeling everyone has shared at some point and time thus far, in our lives. We just haven't had the guts to put our frustrations and inner sadness of our struggles to fame, on paper.
Thanks Georg. Reading it, eases the inner being, giving us all a push to never stop our path to success!

|I needed to read this as well ... being disabled and not working, I have plenty of opportunities to feel sorry for myself, but I am trying not to let that happen. Yes, even clowns cry. Powerful poem, Georg; well penned!
(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in America, Karen Lynn in Texas. :(

|GOOD ADVICE...WE ALL HAVE THOSE 'DOWN TIMES' BUT, WITH ENCOURAGEMENT FROM GOOD FRIENDS LIKE YOU, WE 'HANG IN THERE'...EVEN THO THE CHAIRS ARE EMPTY, KNOWING THAT THERE IS ALWAYS TOMORROW AND NO MATTER HOW WE FEEL, WE'RE NOT 'CHECKING OUT' UNTIL IT'S OUR TIME TO DO SO. WELL DONE AND ENJOYED. THANKS FOR SHARING AND BLESSINGS. LOVE,

|Even with the tongue in cheek humor aimed at brother Ed this has a rich sadness about that does conjure a lot images to mind...like how the fair grounds always looked so empty and used up after the fair or circus had left town.

|Well thought out here with more than a few messages. Well done. J'nia|

|Dear Georg, this poem is so well described and expresses the real circus atmosphere, missing only the audience but you brought it alive so that all who read this poem are the real audience. Please tell the clown that he should be proud of his performance, as he could attract us. Love Emile|

|Bring it on, you both can come out whenever you want and try to "kick my sad clown butt" as per Pee-wee, and I appreciate your poem herein and even what PW said, you two are the best brothers...most of the time...Jersey ed|

|Feelings of empathy drawn here by your poem, Georg. Emmett Kelley with the sad clown face is a childhood painting my great-grandmother, we called her Granny Banks, painted for each of us grandchildren. I still have mine. This is a little off topic, but your poem brought this to mind, that I saw a copy of that exact painting on a wall in a Walter Matthau movie. So, that being said, that as with your little sad poem here, art does imitate life and so on and so on and so on. Thanks Georg for sharing your gift and your heart. --- Starman|

|As Jeanette said, happiness is the better "choice," and at times it can be difficult...better to feel the sadness or emptiness for just a while....and then make the decision to move ahead.|
|Reviewed by Jeanette Cooper
|There are many ways to read this symbolically; yet, the message denotes aloneness regardless of where or when, and the "dry your tears man" seems to be telling us that we should choose happiness even when things aren't all we want them to be.|
|Reviewed by Mr. Ed
|We must all dry our tears, from time to time. And if that old Jersey Devil don't shape up pretty soon, let's go kick his sad clown butt!|
