It Must Be

It must be exhausting being you

Always on the spotlight

Never able to hide from the world.


It must be awful being you

Not able to decide for yourself, not really

Always being told what to do

Because that is the price you pay in exchange for the fame they give you.


It must be cruel in the world you’re living

Because no smile or kindness shows on you

It must be hard to pretend it’s all perfect

When deep down you’re struggling to breathe and break free.

While others look for fame and longs to be known

I prefer to stay in the background

not minding to be outshone

I attain glory with diligence and patience

and celebrate in glorious silence

As everybody else wants to be the star

they’re ready to do anything, I mean anything

no matter how bizarre

 I on the other hand, work the backstage

finding it a little strange

that not many likes to manage and pull the curtain

I thought that it would be fun,

I was quite certain

They write their names on every page

on every wall they can find

 But I leave my canvas blank, I really don’t mind

Because I find it marvelous

to see the work signed as anonymous
