Stage (an acrostic poem)

So you feel like you’re an imposter, an actor

That you play your part in the drama called life

And you are not too good at the role

Give yourself credit.  No one else could take your place

Embrace the applause and take a bow, you’re a star

Flames leapt from the cylinder illuminating the darkness

Leaving Charlene blinded as she stood still among the dancing white flakes

All she could think about in that moment was the story of the little match girl

Realizing that she was going to reprise the main lead role unless there was a Christmas miracle

Every year after, Charlene would leave out a hot toddy and peanut butter cookies because… well they were his favorite
