Poetry

The Actor

By Jaken Steele

I am who I am
Becoming whoever I chose
The persona ever changing
Saddened happy content aggressive
Playing the forgotten role
Forever the lone actor
Portraying all the characters
In a play with no plot
A script only
I know I need no audience
For I am my own
The jester who hides the tears
The clown who cries inside
While others about him laugh
The rebel with no cares
The poet with a heart
I play them all and more
I am who I am
Forever changing myself
Forever the actor
