The actor



Completes the theme
Pages to remember
Delivered proper
Audience understanding clear
One step near of becoming an Actor

Lessons at workshops
Drama schools and universities
Intern at Playhouses
Understudy for the Leads
Years in the wings
Waiting for the doors to open
In real time life ticks on
Food for the family
Purely on the ability
To do work of quality
In regularity
The probability
Known only by the Almighty

How the camera captures
Not in the hands of the actors
Cameras own decision making process
It disowns the player
then no use of acting prowess
One more layer
For a successful acting career

Self Realisation
Easier in comparison
Success in the show business
Holy grail with Christs grace
Easier to trace
Than the name and fame that begets an Actors face

I achieved overnight
Superstardom
After 30 years of struggle
To become an actor
