Actor 1

Actor 1 enters stage right
The world is your stage
Everyone you know
Is in the audience
The spotlight is always on you
Everyone's a critic
Sometimes you choose your role
Other times you take the part you're given
Your lines are unrehearsed
A fake smile hides your pain
You want to be loved
And appreciated for who you are
But it's hard to remove
The mask you wear
You're too heavily invested in the lie
You've bought in to the sham
Taking a shower is for crying
But the show must go on
Waiting on the curtain to close
No encores, second act or repeat shows
You're no star, just one of the cast of thousands
No red carpets or academy awards
Only a picture of you
Fading in a frame
Preserving your fake smile
