I really think that behind their facade the clowns are crying... always...to me there's nothing sadder than a clown
"No need to create a facadeIt’s okay to pretend"Brilliant lines. Mask aren't needed, but it's okay to act/look like something one is not and behave in ways that don't reflect what's in the heart. Poor clown. Maybe.
"For a while" is key. I wonder if it is only in the white face that feelings are felt.
. . . love the repetition of "for a while" it add weights to your reflections.
Excellent sentiment, for a while is so true. I like the message you have written in this piece so very well done.
For a while, its good to shed tears & let go of your emotions ~ Good one Helen ~
There's definitely a need for this space...releasing the facade and feeling for real.
it's always so peaceful to let oneself be at least 'for a while'....wonderful lines
You really know how to frighten children.
This piece spoke to me, being one of those people who is a repeat offender when it comes to depression... Beautiful!
Oh, you're a woman after my own heart, Helen. I don't fight the tears when they come.
These are exactly the words I wish someone told me now and then, while holding me in a hug. This is beautiful Helen. <3
Wisdom here, Helen. It's okay for a while...yes, as long as it doesn't become habit. Very well said.K
i think at times it takes more strength to allow youself to crythan hold it in....smiles.
Yes, I love the repetition "for a while" Each of those is something all of us need to do at times.
that's one scary clown face, Helen. ~
Clowns are evil. Period. Crying however is a very necessary and freeing thing. Great use of the refrain here to put it all in perspective, Helen.
