THE CLOWN ( The Rhyme Style )
When you see my face
Tell me what you see
I am a person beneath
All this fašade you see.
I am not just a clown
And not just a man or woman
Just like you I laugh and cry
Like you I am just a human
So when I am with you
Do you really see me
When I talk to you
Do you really hear me
So when you look at me and see my face
Remember I'm not just a clown filling this place.
