A Beautiful Mask of Smile!

Who has not crossed the bridge of,
Pile of emotions keeps on flickering,
Day and night like the beautiful stars,
Twinkling in the sky, though not visible,
In the bright sunlight!
Like the Mask of beautiful smile,
Covering the painful face.

No one knows whats going inside one's mind.
Like a birdie trapped,
Inside a cage singing painful song.
Loud clapping heard outside for singing.
But inside the cage was a weeping bird.
No one listened her painful cries.

Like a joker in a circus, making the people laugh.
But inside his laughter lies the cries of pain.
As all his days were not pleasant ones.
Yet
He has to make people laugh
Whatever pain he carries with him.

A mask of beautiful smile hides all the pains behind.
Yes its the mask and only mask plays the beautiful roles.

Will I be ever able to unveil the mask?
Yes, a day will come
When I will unveil my mask.
And laugh out loudly
Cry out loudly
Shout out loudly
And live a day only and only for me.

No day is same.
Every day is a new day
As bright as sun!
Which is sure to come in! ! !

    The first line seems incomplete.
    bridge of, (of what)
    If you want me to run through the second line in accordance with first, I am unable to fulfill the right tense.
    This poem is lovely. The parallels you draw about the caged bird and the joker in the circus are a bit cliche but they work wonderfully well over here. especially the one about the joker. I liked the poem a lot. Thank you
