A Clown in Black!

In the middle of almost a deserted place, on the side of the high way, whether on a sunny beautiful day or a cold one, you’ll find him there. Sitting aside, in his colorful clothes, messy crazy hair, red nose, and his huge massive colorful shoes; surrounded by balloons of all colors, and the pink cotton candy enclosed in plastic bags as clouds around and above him. When you caught a sight of him, a smile is immediately drawn on your face.images

He is the mysterious clown, the colorful guy whom lives his life upon drawing a smile on the stranger’s faces, cheering both of the kids and the grownups.

Some may be afraid of his make-up face, and big shoes; the truth is he just a man, with a sad story, covering himself with colors and cheers.

A young man whom the life has drafted him to the edge, a man who is suffering enough to make a living out of the smiles he draws on people’s faces. Deep down under the colored layers, he is suffering, he’s in pain, he’s in need and he’s miserable.

He is a real man in black; he is a poor man in money and rich in his thoughts. He is a compassionate man turning his negative empty life into positive vibes andsad-clown smiles. He might look silly, scary or goofy, but he is just a broken black man knitting the scattered pieces of his life in attempt to draw a smile on your miserable faces.

He is the one to cheer you up on a bad day; he might steal a moment out of your busy day and hope to make you smile, while there is no one out there for him to cheer him up.

By the end of the day, he takes off his fake wig, colorful suite, huge shoes, removes his make-up and phony painted smile, showing his real weary cheerless face. He gathers the few pennies he gained this day, on his way to his dull home; he makes a quick stop to buy what he can afford buying of essential needs.

He is a real man in black who seeks hard to draw a smile on your face… he is the colorful clown!!!

Black & White

Early in the morning Black and White walk out of the apartment towards the elevator, Black looking great in his freshly ironed suite and new haircut. While White is looking very tired in his crumple clothes and messy hair gazing with his sleepy eyes at the floor of the elevator in an attempt to gather what’s left of his energy.

“Hey White are you still wearing yesterday’s clothes?”

“Yes, I stayed up all night replying to urgent emails and had no time to change before we leave”

“Oh are you that busy?!”

“Yup, aren’t you!!?”

“ Nope not at my department , they don’t need me I stare at the screens all day long, no emails , no phone calls, nothing at all”

“Oh I wish I can have a day like this but no they have to ask me about this and that, these and those …. Man I’m exhausted”

“I have an idea let’s switch places for the day, you go to my departments, get some rest and I’ll take you’re just for the day deal?”

“Won’t that cause us problems?”

“No it is legal for us to switch”

“Deal then, see you tonight”web-Wendy

White reached Dark’s office turned on the screens, positioned on the comfortable chair gazing at the screens. He saw the world in fresh new eyes; people cheating on each other, corrupting, lying, betraying, stealing, killing and doing things he never thought of and no one bothered to call him for an advice, as if he never existed. The idea of being useless irritated him, when he saw that bunch of suited men in a meeting. “Enough is enough, I got to do something!”

The day had finally come to an end; Black closed the office and walked home with an extra bunch of work to handle to White. When Black entered the living room, he found White sitting on the sofa, here take those papers, “I’m out of here I need some fresh air, tomorrow I’ll go back to my lovely quiet office”.

“I’m not sure about that” whispered White.

“What? Why?! What have you done Conscious White?”

“Well…Mmmm…I might have done something wrong”

“Something like what? Spill that bean out now White!”

“Well I was watching this meeting of the suited men and I thought I should do something about”

“Oh no no no …….not the suited men!”

“But their decisions were going to harm a lot of people, so I just made a call that’s it”

“Oh no! not the call! Conscious White I sent you there to get some rest not to bother the big heads!”

“Conscious Dark calm down a little when need to go to the court now”.

At the Conscious’s court the judge explained that the big heads complained about Conscious White’s behavior to the main office, Conscious White got fired, and banned from getting into any Conscious operation room for life, Conscious Dark would permanently take his place at the department while Dark’s operation room will be closed, there is no need for it obviously.
