Take a bow

black and white, ballet slipper

I am an uncredited understudy struggling to find out who I am, and what I want to be. Never the star. Always living in the shadows, hidden away from the adoration of those who I long to charm.

I can never be wise enough, talented enough, pretty enough for the limelight to shine on me. I am shade slipping though life alone, leaving no footprints behind. No traces of my passing for the audience to mourn.

On pointe, I tiptoe to the edge of the stage, only to be met with silence. I take a bow, waiting for the curtain.
