Live Today

ClownI have a small box
in which I hide my cries
so the world would not hear

Yesterday after so many years
I opened it, and you won’t believe,
So much laughter that I never knew existed
jumped out and escaped.

The weight of the mortal pains
from yesteryears;
The fear of the imminent pain to
come and go in the future
both have no meaning today

Life will just cheat and get away one day
leaving you stranded without
even a clown’s role to play
so live today

Note: I also created the same poem in the  image, Something I do for Facebook 🙂 every now and then….
