A Dumb Pancake

He is the best of the best.

No one can compare.

"Too bad he's just a dumb pancake," they say.

But he's not. He's more.


He is a creator.

He tells stories,

Builds worlds,

Breathes life onto the stage.


He is everything.

Our mentor. 

Our friend.

He taught us all that we know.


How to move,

How to act.

How to make cake flavored scrambled eggs.

How to live like nobody's watching.


More important than that, 

He taught us how to project.

He made our voices be heard.


Because of him,  I am no longer scared to be who I want to be.


But yeah,

"Too bad he's just a dumb pancake."
