My director calls.
As I rehearse for my school play,
"Dear Evan Hansen,
We've been way to out of touch!"
I sing.
I know that sound to well.
"More Enthusiasm!"
"Act knowing your experiences"
All statements stab me,
Like a knife.
I try, I really do!
But my experiences,
Are the things holding me back.
My friend's suicide attempt.
My parent's divorce.
My sister's depression.
And my non-acceptance,
only because of my presence!!!!!
So don't judge me if I can't act,
When I'm only taking your advice.
I do act at my school. And I am judged by my director. That line is from a song called "Sincerely Me" from the musical, "Dear Evan Hanson". It's my favorite musical!!!!
