This is the life of an extra, the shadow of an original.

Throughout my entire life
I have always been an extra

I've had countless unheard ideas
Millions of thoughts in my head
Thousands of opinions
And yet I never take the spot light

I am a background character
Who does not have a voice
A spare
Whose role in life is to just "be there"
In case the original
Can not perform their role
I am the shadow of an original
I am an extra
