What could be is what can't be.
Acting is a dream that i crave
To be able to give the gift of laughter
To be able to bring happiness or sorrow
To be an escape for those who dislike their reality
That's what I want to be.
But to be ridiculed by those who love you
And criticized by those you've trusted
Because what you wanted was not good enough
Not good enough to pay the bills
Not good enough to raise a family
Not reliable enough to support a future.
You think maybe it isn't good enough
Maybe it won't work
So you decide that it's better to take a different path
Let go of what could be
And take a grip of what should be
Because choosing what should be is a safer bet than what could be.
