Poem No. 21 The Actor

(National Poetry Writing Month – April 2013)

The Actor

I am an actor
Without a stage,
No script is written
Upon my page

I am an actor
Who was all the rage,
At a different time,
In another age

I am an actor
Of once-proud fame,
Who was sure in spirit,
Bold in aim

Now I am an actor
With no stars door,
Willing audience
Or spot-lit floor

I was an actor
But am no more,
Exactly what I am,
I am not sure

My poetry blog has come of age with the 21st poem for #NaPoWriMo 2013. Check out Photo No.21 which accompanies this poem.
