"I can sum up everything I've learned about life in three words; it goes on." -Robert Frost

I might not be the heroine
of this story,
I may just be the sidekick-
watching from a distence,
only there when you need me.
My name will be the one they forget
by the end of the chapter.
And I'll be know as the "other" girl...
But I'll keep flipping the pages
until it's my turn to jump into the print
and become the main charator in someone else's life.

"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss

I like how the poem makes you feel like you are waiting on the sidelines, and also how informative it is to real life - we each have to wait for a "shining time" or time in the spotlight. Thanks!
