As a kid growing up I used to dream of being an actress or singer. Or even the wife of someone famous so I could look pretty for the camera … dreams of a child are not well thought out. Now as an adult and more so the older I get, I am glad I did not follow that dream. To never have any privacy. Your entire life out there for everyone to see. You couldn’t pay me enough to be that pretty woman on the red carpet… did you ever wish for something you now are far away from wanting?
She opens the door and steps out of the car
Her long legs stretch out first
Followed by her slender figure
The dress she wears sparkles in the lights
Her face is painted to sheer perfection
Her hair in an elegant up-do swept off her neck
She exudes beauty in the spotlight
And we all look on in awe and envy
…but would we really want that life
Never able to block out the light of scrutiny
No matter how dark the sunglasses are
Stuck forever in the shine of celebrity?
