• The actor sits in the corner.
    With cheers and smiles and stories.

    Nobody knows the pain he's seen,
    They only partake in his glories.

    His life has been a punishment.
    His life has been a toy.

    Yet still no one digs deeper.
    And takes off his mask of joy.

    When he passes by the people, exclaim, "Wow,
    It's the best actor in the world."

    And this is because he can play two roles.

    Behind his smile,
    Lies his surprise.
    His story; his ruse

    His role; his disguise.

    Run behind the curtain,
    before the play begins to start.

    If you do,
    you just might see
    his broken, wounded heart.
