Just Open Your Eyes

The laughing joker and the clown
That is what they see
Beause I refuse to frown,
But that is killing me.

They see me as an idiot
Why can't I make them see
That this laughing idiot
Isn't really me?

Maybe cause I laugh and smile
Always the class clown
I hide behind a smiling face,
That face doeth hide a frown.

They don't see me as serious
They don't think I can be
But if they looked closer here
They might see the real me.

Yes, I joke and laugh aloud
Yes, I act the fool
Yes, I stand out in a crowd
Yes, I break the rules.

But if you looked deep in my eyes
You'd see intelligence brew
I've had to learn the hard way
So laugh is what I do.

If I were not bright
And a dunce like you think you see
Then here would I be now
Claiming victory?

No, it would not seem so
So let me make this clear
I am equal to your level,
But I don't shout it for all to hear.

Just open your eyes.
