Hi! I'm here to leave a quick review!!
Anyway let's get right to it,
Clowns, we fear and we love them.
Clowns, we dress as them for All Hallow’s Eve.
We laugh when we see them, run when we get near them.
Scream when they’re closer, cry when they are gone.
We look at them, with gory fascination, wondering what could be going on underneath all of that exaggerated makeup…we wonder what could be below a frightening exterior.
But…what if…the clowns hid their emotions and feelings, because they were the most human of us all?
They have care so much about entertaining others, be it scaring them or making them feel better, that they have forgotten about their own emotions.
When clowns try to show their emotions, they get pushed away, so they’re encouraged to hide them more.
Clowns, such wonderful beings.
They don’t get enough credit..
Well here is me taking a little detour from my normal fair to take a peak at some of the other things you've written and this little poem really caught my eye because it is a genuine very interesting perspective to be looking at clowns from especially when you think about how clowns normally tend to come across in most of your stories.
I love how you manage to both showcase about how clowns can be scary sometimes and also at the same time bring about why it can be scary and how clowns in general don't exactly strive to be scary and work only towards making people laugh or at least they try to hide their emotions behind this makeup they wear and do their best to survive.
I think its a powerful message and especially towards the end where you bring in emotions so strongly and end on that powerful message there to appreciate clowns more and to see that under all of what can sometimes be so scary and appropriate more on Halloween, there's still a human, one that perhaps wants to hide from the dangers of the world more than most. All in all a really powerful piece this one.
Aaaaand that's it for this one.
As always remember to take what you think was helpful and forget the rest.
