THEATER BALLAD
 
I hear the crowd’s whispers ripple like a wave
As my heart fails to be brave
Beating like a drum in my chest
Echoing throughout this curtained cave
 
This show has to be the best
It is much more important than the rest
Everything has led here
The final test
 
As the time to start draws near
I suddenly lose all fear
For I am no longer me
My old identity has been wiped clear
 
Through this new person I see
The way the world should be
And as I take my last curtsy
I realize that theatre will always keep me free.
