Dance with destiny.

A moment in time.

The spotlight on your face.

Can you stand the glare?

 

Or will the heat send you

Skittering into the dark corners,

Seeking the safety of obscurity,

the safety of a little crack in the woodwork.

 

I guess we all deserve a little fame in our lives,

A pinnacle of achievement.

but it’s so clichéd.

Overnight success;

Hitch your wagon to a star.

 

You struggle in the quiet

Time you have,

to commune with your thoughts

and words.

 

You may achieve fame, but for what?

Do you remember the reason you chose

this course of action?

Was it for love, for recognition,

for retribution?

Immortality!
