Becoming stars
in an ordinary song
Regular people become
courageous, lighting up the stage
showing the talent they had all along.
Some shy, some extravagant,
they share the spotlight
wondering where their dreams went.
Supporting strangers in the night.
They gleam
They sparkle
They become what they own
The best part of themselves
is lit up and shown.
They sing to their husbands
Their children and wives,
Then they sit themselves down
and go back to their lives.
