All My Life

All my life
I’ve had this dream
Of red carpets
Flashing lights
Signing autographs
Even singing

This dream
Turned to fantasy
As life spun
Out of control

Self-doubt
Low image
No confidence
Failed attempts
No glimpse
Of a future
Untold

The sun rises
Birds chime in
I realize then
The power to
Open the door
Has been in
My hands
All my life
