    A very pragmatic write, Geetha. Barring a few most of us are actually masking our sorrows and pains under our fabricated smiling face. But if we don't do that, we'd have been died much earlier under the pressure of sorrows.Hence this mask of smile is of immense value to keep us alive.... well done my dear. (Report) Reply

    When a reader starts thinking that this poem is written for me, the poet is certified to be great. As an insignificant reader I certify that you are a great poetess. (Report) Reply

    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 (Report) Reply
