There’s happiness in every face

And people laughing loud

But there’s a lonely figure

Standing in the crowd

He’s also laughing

But there’s a difference

While people are laughing at each other

He’s laughing at himself


He makes the people laugh at him

He’s become a joker

Though he’s the butt of every joke

People appreciate his sense of humour

He’s deprived of dignity

And the respect that he wanted

How’ll he get that respect?

When people have taken him for granted


And though sadness fills his heart no

He continues to laugh

But is there anyone

Who can cry on his behalf?

He never wanted to hurt anyone

But once did a mistake

But still he puts on a happy facade

Just for the people’s sake


He won’t share his sadness with anyone…..
