I wait for the curtains to come down..
Have told the director about my last act.
I do not need direction,I can not act!
Act hungry -I am not.
Act needy -Never was.
Act like somebody,
I can never be.
Give the teleprompter a break
Prompt me not, cues you forget.
Now I mouth my own lines,
Glad I pen those just great!
When I am the spot beneath the light,
I fail to see you my audience.
I back my steps into the dark,
for that is my spot and I see you stark!
No longer can wait, with a painted face
In the green room ,for my turn on stage
To remove the mask,to end the role play,
I have to move now,I have to act !
