Upon the Glaring Stage

Here I am again in my reoccurring role
I say those familiar lines in my head
I walk upon the dusty stage
I look out through the bright lights 
The audience is always missing
I play my character with passion and conviction
I cry and writhe in my pain
After my performance there is silence
No accolades 
No critical acclaim
Just a fool playing the fool
On this ridiculous glaring stage
