Center Stage


Have you ever felt like your life was on a stage?
You lived on center stage.
Everyone's watching your every move.
You're left feeling like you have to prove.
To the whole world, that you know, they've been watching you.
I see you!
You thought I didn't know.
You thought I'd just blow.
You off,
But, I see you.
You're wondering and pondering is she going to write about me.
How could this be?
What will she write next?
Will it be sent in a text?
It's about me.
I'm on center stage.
Wishing I could hide in a cage.
My life written on a page,
What's my age?
Will it be believable?
Or unbelievable,
What will people think?
Will I need a stiff drink?
It could be something nice.
Or something with spice,
Or some sound advice.
Given twice!
Whatever, it's me.
I'm on center stage.

(For the Rev. James J. Daly, S. J.)

Bright stars, yellow stars, flashing through the air,
Are you errant strands of Lady Mary's hair?
