The Supporting Character

The Supporting Character

you do it all 
without thanks.
When they see you
they stare
at an enigma,
because you are true to you.
You never do things "right"
You are never a failure 
despite having failed
many times.
they can't see your star
and so they set you aside
looking for a light
that carries fool's gold.

You are the supporting character.

A bad romcom disaster.

Many may see a walking wreck
but we all been cast with respect to being that.

What they don't see 
is each day when you do something.
They don't need to know
how kind you are,
how much you sacrificed.
They don't need to see 
all you have done
with the little that you have.

No one needs to give you a golden statue
to show that you were here.
Just being is enough
because you are already satisfied
with the role you have been given.
