You can’t find the words to describe me.
I am known and unknown to you.
I am a familiar face and a stranger at the same time.
You think you know me but you are doubtful.
You look for the slightest touch of familiarity but it’s not there.
You stare and wonder and ask yourself
“Who is she?”
Others want to be seen
But others just want to stay hidden
Because they know what the cost is
He stared and so did I
Familiar in many ways yet unfamiliar in between
Somewhere we might have crossed paths
In a place familiar and the same
But my mind can’t find where.
We stared at each other
Transfixed for a moment
Everything that seemed familiar never came
I am not as great as they
All I can really say
I will be erased from history’s timeline
And no one will ever know what was mine
I am just a speck of dust carried by the wind
And I will be erased without a trace
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
