Breathe in an ambition,
Breathe out the character.
I am not who I was a second ago.
I'm a new body, a new background,
A different person, but I can relate.
The curtain, the stage,
The space I remain.
The glittering spotlights
Lick upon my skin.
Step after step until I reach the center,
That vast ocean of possibility.
I don't play the part.
I am the role.
I am exposed.
My heart spills out through the lines.
