    A celebrity has double role as in drama and in real life. The personality of a celebrity has been nicely inscribed in this poem. Lovely one. (Report)Reply

    Dual personality of a celebrity nicely described. On the stage he is a different man but in his real life he is a man like us. A thoughtful poem. (Report)Reply

    quite philosophical -

    an echo with a real voice
    like the truth of liars
    that makes silence eloquent,

    great 10+++

    A great poem throwing light on the real heart of a celebrity that isnt suown to the world.

    Each one of us within our hearts dream to be a celebrity and once we are, we would really experience the pain of being a celebrity.

    Amazing write dear Peerbocus Sir!

    the truth of liars
    Makes silence eloquent
    Well-expressed! Both governments and practical people are wonderfully eloquent!

    In our minds we all wish to be
    Some sort of celebrity.
    But if we knew the troubled path
    Most would be happy with what they have.

    One of the best poems I've read recently. I really enjoyed the 'truth of liers'' part and the poignant ending.

    Do celebrities hide behind their persona or are they really trying to escape from them? To be caged behind the plastic facade of fame and expectation. Trapped by the image that one has worked so hard to cultivate. At the mercy of one's own success. Enjoyed very much x (Report)Reply
