CENTER STAGE

To become gold, you have to struggle,

I know I need these struggles,

But sometimes, I feel all I do is struggle.

One day I want to shine like a star,

But I can’t be comforted until I feel it,

It’s like I’m bloodthirsty, it’s all I think of.

She said we’re all dying but I knew,

That she felt death closer than the rest.

The world says there’s so much to take,

But I see it, and I want none of it,

‘Cause I see its worth for all it is,

A show. Life’s a movie,

I used to think it was a joke, back then,

But things, uncertain as they are,

Make me think, maybe it is.

A sad picture, but my happy moments,

Are the ones I live for; would die for.

It’s the carelessness I’m trying to reach.
