Someone once said all the world is one of these

That may be so, but not everyone is an actor

As I feel a lot of people decide to spend their time as props

Giving others something to manipulate but not adding much to the plot of history

Enabling them to dodge the question of to be or not to be because they were afraid to perform

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

Stars do their ballet dance

High above her head

It gives her goosebumps

Nighttime performances like this were awe inspiring

Especially as some performers blazed across the stage

Focusing on her toes, she went en pointe

Enabling her to float across the stage magically

Everything about this whispered of her having a superpower, but that meant

The dancer’s heel and tendinitis where her arch-villains

Being a ballerina had always been his dream

Underneath the bright lights, dancing en pointe

Looking into infinity as he bounded across the stage

Knowing he was the center of everyone’s attention

Yet he knew that being a hippopotamus was going to make it difficult
