Do you play one?
Are you one?
Does the story unfold around you?
Do you fold in the story with a limited view?
When you play a part
You play in their art
When character comes through
You see the play from another view
You see the stories intertwine
You see how every character must be allowed to shine
You take center stage for a bit
Then you take your turn to sit
Then you start to grow
You begin to enjoy the show
Whether on the stage or silver screen
You begin to see what I mean
If a rehearsed character is all they see
They may not want to watch thee
But if the character you are presents true
They stay to watch you
Be your character
Play a character
The choice is yours
One opens all the doors
Look within to find who you are
Shine from within to be your own star
Shine the spotlight that you are
See how others respond to your star
When you put that spotlight on another
You find a sister or a brother
Then they turn their spotlight on you
As they stop to watch your show too
Never performing but always showing
The inner you that is eternally glowing
Do you play a character?
Are you your character?
Take the stage my friends
For the play that never ends
May you all shine bright
And never feel stage fright
The audience is waiting
Let your true character shine through
Let the audience see the real you
Let your star shine
Yours as bright as mine
His as bright as hers and theirs
Who cares who stares?
Stare at each other in awe
For the brilliant star you just saw
Share the character you were born to be
See who shares the stage with thee
Let the show go on and on
The curtain is long gone
Live your story
Bring your glory
