Clowns are Faithful

It seems that I've spent much of my life standing motionless in the rain
The tears I've cried and still do can easily go unnoticed down the drain
I am very blessed and grateful that I've made some headway here
But that doesn't mean the work is done and the path is free and clear
That is so and I'm positive I know, because the lonely wolf remains
I wrecked so much, I ran them off with my demons and my fears
The love of few, the distractions I used, hoping the end was finally near
I never really realized that you can't easily self-medicate the crazy all away
But yet I did and never veered, ready to fuck it up until forever and a day
Little things still snag me and make me go into orbit, I guess they always will
The things that hurt the deepest now are not the ones that cripple, ruin and kill
It's the wasted time I squandered, the minutes and the hours, and far too many days
It's the love I should have cultivated with so many lovely people I met along the way
Some of my changes now don't get me wrong for I'm proud of the miles that I have come
But my heart still misses some things that have changed somehow and make me feel so numb
I miss my Blogstream family, it was a source of fun yet a deep stability for the hell of me
And yes I'm back at writing, it served me then. and it may again, we'll just pray and see

I said I miss many things......yet another is neigh.

For many generations of families it provided an escape, if only for an evening. It rode the rails and carried elephants and life's important clowns....

"And we all need the clowns to make us smile"

Thanks Barnum and Bailey, because you always knew the clown could change a frown....



  1. Perfect. Sentimentalist that I am, I love Journey. The road is long, but the reward is great. Just follow your heart, always.

    1. I replied here and now....POOF it's gone. But just in case, thank you for the kind words.
