When I Grow UP

I want to be an Actor, My shyness has hampered me thus far
My Credentials however are worth looking at a STAR
To this day I remember my lines in the 6th Grade Play “King Lear”
“LOOK!! There He is now." For those of YOU who are not Actors
Please; It’s not as easy as it Looks, for instance it took nine weeks
To Perfect the Emotion it took to convey this simple Line
 Take One : “LOOK THERE!!  He is now, teacher ask What is Now
Take Two : “LOOK!!  There he is, NOW, teacher “Is the Castle in shambles”
Take Three : look there HE IS now, teacher “What was he before
So when the day comes that a Great Producer picks up that 6th grade Program
I will speak my POETRY to YOU on the Silver Screen, no, Autographs until
                                                 The Sequel

    I remember what I had to learn in first grade...It was a song...I sang my lines so I guess I could star in a musical when the time is right..Keep the creative pen flowing. Sara
