I Am A Star………..In My Own Mind
I am one of those people who would love to walk by a crowd and they’d whisper among themselves because they recognized me. I’d love to be the singer who wins “The Voice” or the dancer who won it all.
I am the greatest singer of all time. I am better than anyone else out there. I make people cry, feel joy as I translate the words into something indescribably in my own head but when I open my mouth, my voice is ok. It will never catch anyone’s attention but I’d like to think it won’t make dogs scurry off into corners out of fright.
For anything like singing, dancing, or even drawing, I am so much better in my mind but I know in this world I’m nothing special. I will never garner the attention of the public simply because I have no driving force to stand out. I am not willing to put in the time to become better.
It might be due to growing up in a family where you didn’t do anything to stand out. Standing out was not acceptable, only being one of the crowd was accepted. It might be that I learned if you did perform, you had to be good, really good and if you weren’t at that stage yet, you shouldn’t even try.
So today, I sing in the shower where I am by myself and what comes out of my mouth, translates into the beautiful, haunting voice of an angel. I dance in my room where it becomes a stage and I am the soloist whose movements are raved about in the newspaper. I am the musician whose solo is commented upon by the judges of America’s Got Talent.
Sometimes I think it’s better to live out those dreams in my mind because I have all the privacy I want. I can walk down the street and I’m not recognized. I’ll never end up in the papers, magazines, or in one of those television shows sharing the latest scandal.
No matter what. I am a star……. in my own mind and will always be one, and no one can tell me different. Let me know what you think, I’d love to hear. Have a great day.
