The lights so bright, I cannot see

And though visibly impaired by this

I know everyone's eyes are on me 

Every move I make, they will not miss

Who am I?

In front of the World, I do not know

I have become my new persona

I have embraced for this show

At that moment, it is the only show ever produced

The greatest I shall ever know

And so it shall be what I can prove

It to be, and so I feel it is all on me

The stage connects me to the crowd

And the curtain to myself

And the performance done to something else

What I cannot explain but know I have felt

And while I question who I am at that moment 

I know when I walk away who I will be

Because of who I have slowly become

By what theater instilled in me
