One enters the circus ring (the world) with optimism and innocence.
Drawn from my personal experience, this is part of a sequence of events wherein the protagonist learns about life . She enters the ring at puberty with optimism and naive curiosity . After some time and the healing help of empathetic tamed wild animals ,she rides out triumphant and empowered by what she has been through and learned .
