I paint this face
This visage of mine
The brush I use
The bristles fine
To cover all that is exposed
The paint to hide
The fear and pain
I use bright colorful thick
And untrue
To hide the me
No one wants to see
Beneath the facade
I hide
Smiles and laughter I bring
But I bring it not
For the me I see
But for the joy and laughter
Everyone gets
From the tears of a clown
