What is it? We see it everywhere:
That natural unbalance of support
It is everywhere we go
Yet it goes unseen by many.
Athletics and performing arts,
Performing arts and athletics.
We see the unbridled support of
Local athletes in communities,
But what about the actors or musicians?
Rarely do I see companies
Supporting these brave souls
Who take more chances than your
Average person. Might we see a little
More balance in the world we live?
In schools we see thespians bullied by
Jocks who don't know how to be
Something else. Thespians are comfortable
In being themselves while the rest
Are too busy being would be's.
Can't we support these brave souls
Who reflect the fear and bravery of the
Human spirit in life around us.
A single person can change the world,
Can build you up, can knock you down.
The world is an empty place without the
Arts. But why think of sports as
Superior and arts as inferior? It takes one,
Just one incident to make a difference.
The natural unbalance of support,
Perhaps, is not so natural after all.
