i think it's time i walk
off
the stage
it's time to
take my final bow

i'm done with 
all the
fake tears
fake laughs
fake masks
i think i'll
cast mine aside

and maybe people 
will clap
for the person i am
not the one i pretend
to be 

and maybe i can stop
masquerading
with people
who are not real
and whose only existence
depends on
ink on a page
and those willing to
take on their appearance

and then you will see
who i really am

you won't see
the actress
bathed in
shining lights
and surrounded by
adoring fans 

(they only care for
the character
i act like
not me 
never me)

and then you will realize
i am not just a 
blank canvas
to be
painted
stripped of color
reused

again and again

until all that i once was
is washed out by 
the flashes of cameras
and the 
smears
of stage makeup

i am a person
beneath all the masks
i wear
behind all the 
emotionless
tears i shed
and
laughs
i force

i am me
not the characters
i strive to embody
i am 
me

so i think it's time i walk
off
the stage
it's time to 
take my final bow
say goodbye to 
the characters
i gave life to

and find the picture
hidden
by the white paint
that i've covered
my "blank" canvas with
for so long

    Ok yes! Thank you for the NATO idea, I would have never thought of it. Also, I just read this piece and wanted to say- awesome job! I like the style it was written in, and you don't use super complex words, so this is easy to read, but that doesn't mean that it isn't powerful. I fact, I think it's a very powerful piece. :)

    This is absolutely beautiful! I think it's something that many actors and actresses, including myself, can relate to. You capture the emotions perfectly!
    Some lines are longer than others, so I suggest that you either join some of the smaller lines or chop some of the longer lines. Other than that, I can't think of anything else to add.
