Protagonist - Poem by Adrija Dey

I stand on the stage of life
Draped in a dream
And as I perform I know
I am but the protagonist of my own play
Sometimes wearing the mask of the heroine
And sometimes that of the villain
I smile, I laugh, I cry, I kill
Drinking in the venom of life
Each passing day bringing me
One step closer to death
I see, I sigh, I wonder
For aspirations as rampant as mine
I want to reach the sky
I dream………
There is a sinking feeling of déjà vu all around
I know, I realize, I feel
Left alone on the stage of life
Me and my dream
I am but the child of destiny.
