Curtain Call

How did I not see it fall?

When it came to you? To us?

I thought the show would go on forever.

Now I am standing here with tears shining in my eyes –

Silently wishing.. begging and longing for an encore.

There is too many scenes that I want a chance to make better – to really get right.

Perhaps that is what makes – made – our show so wonderful.

That throughout it all, at its core, it was real.

The good, bad, funny, scary, destructive, selfish, yet lovable.

It was us.

Fresh and original. Meant to leave those in the audience in awe with full hearts.

To have them wanting more.

What I would not give for just one encore!

That is why I am standing here, silently

and slowly taking my bow.

Because now I know – once we all have played our parts –

None of us can escape that final curtain call.

Music has always been a part of me. No matter how many times I would try to pursue a career in something else I would find myself coming right back to it. So now I am done with running scared. I was all in on this journey. And I'm so glad that I saw it through, because it lead me to something that I love. Something that I didn't think was possible - the ability to become a self published author. For years I have written poems, my thoughts, short stories, and songs. Really it was just therapy to me, but now I want to see where else it can take me too. So I'm learning the social media ropes thanks to all these social media outlets. Also working up my nerve to face the networking scene for the artists and musicians in my hometown too. All with the hopes of connect with others who love music as much as I do. And to make some coin by music and write freelancing. Let's see what happens, shall we?
