My Job

I am a clown that works in a circus, Without the make-up and the funny clothes, Yet, I strive for laughter everyday. My family needs it in times like now. I am a lawyer of reckoning times, Without high fees and hidden agenda, Yet, peaceful solution is quickly gained. My family needs it in times like these. I am a wife and mom full of loving, Without desire for prestige employment, Yet, smudged kisses are sweetest reward. My family needs them in cherished times. I am a person lacking perfection, Without my family I would be lost, Yet, I know seasons of life often change. My family needs me at present time.
