    From the Balcony

    Nothing more than
    players marching on the stage.

    Scene after scene,
    lines after lines and the
    monotony of it makes me want
    to release a scream.

    From the Balcony...

    Observing
    Never-conforming,
    they claim that I need a
    reforming.
    "Change who you are and become
    this?"
    They say.
    "Fit into this mold and you'll be better in the
    morning."

    From the Balcony....

    Clearly able to see,
    how manipulative and
    destructive this contingency.
    I look within the mirror,
    the close of the second act.
    I want nothing to do
    with accepted fallacies
    or with this dry a** reality...
    A mere temporal fantasy that
    means ceasing to exist as
    the individual me, and loose out on the
    potent viscosity of my
    Mahogany-colored sea.

    PLEASE!!!!

    From the Balcony...

    Accept me for who I am.
    Accept that I am both
    Playwrite and Actor,
    and God; he's my all and Director.
    Ask, What type of Factor?
    Hmmm, its easy, he's my only patron and
    benefactor,
    I've broken through the plaster.

    Siskel and Ebert give me two thumbs up....
    but upon this stage the cast wants to
    serve me pure poison in a silver cup.
    Mirror, mirror reveal some clearance,
    Now they try to change my appearance.
    Place me in a stone cold sepulcher and
    lock me in a vault...
    No creativity or the beauty of my
    own individuality.
    I break free...
    heeding the wisdom of clarity and
    allowing my cocoon to blossom into a new me.

    From the Balcony....

    I no longer see with
    my eyes, so clouded by this world
    naturaly,
    but instead the last act comes around...
    I, refuse to be typecast and I stand my
    ground.
    Move around chump...
    Don't expect me to be nothing more than
    a dry hump.
    Prostitute me in the image of societies HO;
    Leaving me at the mercy of every Tom, D*** and Joe Blow.
    I retreat into my inner glow...
    taking my identity from the beauty of God's
    special flow.

    I sit and stare,
    my time upon the stage soon
    to come...
    a time when I will act out MY
    monologue and not some
    pre-written slum.
    But until that time,
    this brother of divinity and earth
    will sit and watch quietly...

    I'll sit in peace and contentment
    in my place...
    From the Balcony

    Only appreciated when you're playing a role, but to thine own self you must be true. Eloquently written, but then, that's your style.
