To Shine Bright On Centerstage Isn'T That Simple - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

People believe it takes just a wish,
To stand on stage with a getting of spotlight.
And soon discover,
One has to earn that right to be considered serious.
And then befriend the ones behind the scenes,
Who control any images they wish to expose as given.

Anyone throwing up their nose,
Telling all within listening distance what they can do...
Are surprised how fast they are shown exits.
To get to shine bright on centerstage isn't that simple.
Especially if one ignores working on their craft.
Even if a working on it may not qualify to get near a stage.
