It's All An Act


Putting myself in the spotlight

I expect to be booed off stage

Maybe some applause now & again

Perhaps even the occasional

Rose or two thrown from an admirer

Perhaps I should have seen it coming

Maybe the stage lights obscured my vision

My mouth hurts from this fake smile

And all these false words that aren't mine

Just close the curtain

I'm sick of being on display

Please just end this act

I just need to cry

All in a day's work.
