The problem is, you think you have time.

Here I am, Here I stand,

Center stage, here i'll stay,

Until the applause wash over me,

With all the array of the bouquets,

I wonder if my makeup is okay,

I wish a memory will fade away,

When i forgot all my lines, and had to make up lies,

1982 feels all blue; glam rock is all new,

To find the person behind the scenes,

To become the person not written in the script,

My place is in the library way, way back amongst the books

Enriching myself with literature and history

This is the stuff i can get away from when i chose,

But playing this role is now that i cannot lose.

I agree with EnochDreams there are a few things you should look over but overall a good poem.

Hence poetry is something more philosophic and of graver importance than history, since its statements are rather of the nature of universals, whereas those of history are singulars. - Aristotle

Probably should revise some of the lines, but the words are inspirational :)
