Shine a light

 

 

Naked in the spot

 

This is the first story

I’ve lived as me

No costumes

No grease paint

No dramatic entrances

Reading ahead is not an option

When you’re performing without a script

But, if you’re quick on your feet

You can steal the show

Or a heart

What would you give

For a part like that?

To play the role

Of the real you

And triumph.

  1. First off, let me just get this out of the way…. F##k yeah Stones!

    Ok, there. I feel I have met my obligation as RS fan. Anyway, this poem is a ringing endorsement of self exploration, the value of finding one’s self and embracing it. By extension, it suggests the value in accepting others who are also living their own true self.
