Life is just a play
Except I didn't get the role I wanted
I got a stupid side character
That contributes nothing
To the actual story
I'm not evil
But everyone still hates me

When will I get the lead
Play the smiling protagonist?
Clearly I missed my audition
Because I was planted into this
Without the judges knowing who I am
I'm not this
Why am I like this?

When will I get my bow
And my standing ovation and roses?
RIght now I'm at the back
During the curtain call
No one sees me
Through the throng of actors
That are better than me.

I think I missed my audition
And I want to get a redo
A restart, fresh and clean
So judges, wherever or
Whoever you may be
I want to audition again.
...please...

    This feels very relatable. The emotion was very present and impactful. The concept was wonderful. Really love this poem!!!

    Wooooowww!! I absolutely love this- especially the spectacular rhyme here, "When will I get the lead/Play the smiling protagonist?/Clearly I missed my audition/Because I was planted into this" The whole thing was very very beautiful and I loved reading it from end to end! Amazing! -the metaphor was ingenious!

    I love the use of metaphor here. This entire poem captures the essence of the message so incredibly well. Especially this part - "Right now I'm at the back/During the curtain call/No one sees me"
    I honestly have no words this is so good
