Being an actor or actress Doesn't mean you are on broadway, Or a star of a hit reality TV show.
Being an actor or actress Means you step onto the stage And give it your all. You accept the spotlight Not as a blinding piece of equipment, But as a sun shining on you, Bringing you to life. When you hear the term Break a leg You form a grin, Knowing it's not literal. When the laughter Of a crowd on opening night Encourages you and gives you hope.
Being an actor or actress Isn't about the flowers Or the repetitive good jobs after a show. Being an actor or actress Is about the butterflies you get Before you go on stage. It's about the energy you feel When you and your cast Do something spectacular On stage.
Being an actor or actress Is an outlet from the real world. It allows you to step onto stage And forget about the boy Who broke your heart, Or the money struggles, Or the bombs going off In other countries. It allows you to step into A new and exciting universe, Where nothing else matters except,
