Backstage story


Two sides of the show that runs
viewers, performers-each other’s delight
It is all dark, lights on stage
Me backstage, to enter light

My show goes on as I perform
They clap through the loud sound
I smile wide throughout I act
Eyes in darkness, no one found

I throw my talents, they enjoy
Till I know it, the show ends
I cross the panels, run backstage
To the makeup room that mends

My nervousness to perfect beauty
I get ready for another shot
We had spent our lives practicing
Backstage, my team shouts a lot

Everyone stares, I breathe deep
Flawless I look I land on stage
I enjoy the day of my life
They decide my future image
